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
