This course has been custom-designed by Open Colleges for canine lovers who are passionate about their animals and want to learn how to effectively train their own pet or become a dog trainer.

The tips and tricks you will learn will teach you how to help your dog respond in the correct way; a skill that can be applied in the home, with show dogs or in a kennel. The course also covers comprehensive information on the categories of training and the history of the dog. As well as this, you will be given an array of included learning materials, including DVDs, a textbook and a clicker and be taught the basics of clicker training your canine.

This course would also be ideal for those who are planning on adding a new animal to their household, as it gives professional pointers on pet selection and animal temperament, and a guide to specific breeds.

If you love dogs and want to learn how to train them, structure this flexible course around your other family, work and study commitments and connect with other animal lovers via the Open Space learning community online through Open Colleges.
