Career Opportunities & Progression




This programme is designed as a short introduction with only a small practical component.
It does not qualify you to become a dog trainer or behaviourist. It does, however provide a solid grounding to allow the learner to make decisions on whether or not to pursue such a career.
You can progress onto our Pet Boarding & Dog Training Internship Programme where you will assist in dog training classes with our Senior Trainers & gain hands on experience working in our boarding facility. Majority off our staff are all past internship students.
