Dog Obedience Trainer

About the Level 3 Dog Obedience Trainer Certificate

Are you a dog person? Do you want to turn your love of dogs into a viable career? Or are you looking to teach your own pet some impressive tricks? If you have answered yes to any of these three questions, this could be the ideal distance learning course for you. With the correct training and impeccable care, a dog really can be your best friend.

This online course is spread over eight distinct modules. These engaging home study units have been designed to teach you everything you need to know about canine care. The topics cover everything through from choosing a dog and learning about breeds, to dog behaviour and teaching useful commands. Altogether the course should take approximately 120 hours in total.

Who should study this course?

This home study qualification is aimed at individuals who want to find work as dog trainers. However, it is also suitable for people who already work with dogs and want to develop their dog behaviourist skills, or those who have pet dogs they want to train.

At Stonebridge College, we don’t ask our students to have any puppy training experience or qualifications before they enrol. All we ask is that they have the motivation to embark on a new educational journey, and in this case, a passion for dog agility training.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of this dog training course, you will be confident working with and training all kinds of dogs. If you enjoyed studying with us at Stonebridge College, there are plenty of other animal related courses for you to choose from.

If you would rather find work straight away, this qualification will set you in good standing for a dog training position. There are plenty of opportunities for experienced dog trainers. You may choose to work for an organisation or offer your services on a self-employed basis. Jobs include:

  • Assistance dog trainer
  • Police dog trainer
  • Dog behaviour specialist

For more information about this course, give us a call on this number: 0121 392 8288

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Dog Obedience Trainer Diploma

Certificate 2 is issued by ABC Awards: Level 3 Dog Obedience Trainer Certificate of Achievement

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges have undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 3 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
