If you are interested in becoming a well-rounded and certified dog trainer our PACE program may be right for you. In fact, anyone interested in working in the animal field would benefit from PACE whether you want to start your own rescue organization, dog walking, boarding or sitting business, become a professional groomer, veterinarian, or animal health technician. Our program is fun, flexible and in-depth. What else makes us different from others out there? More practical, hands-on experience with a wide variety of dogs!
PACE Offers Two Certificates
CAHS Canine Handling Skills and Behaviour Knowledge Certificate
This one year program is designed for anyone currently working in or interested in working or volunteering with dogs in various ways including; Animal Rescue, Sheltering or Fostering, Animal Health Technician, Veterinarian or Veterinary Clinic Staff, Dog Walking/ Sitting, Dog Day Care, Boarding Dogs, or Groomers, or anyone with the interest and drive to learn more about canine handling and behaviour.
CAHS Canine Behaviour, Handling Skills & Instructor Certificate
This program will take 12-18 months to complete depending on the time commitment each individual student devotes to it in-line with personal schedules. It is designed for people driven to pursue a career as a professional pet dog trainer in either a classroom or private setting. This certificate includes the Canine Handling Skills and Behaviour Knowledge Certificate but delves deep into instructing group classes and teaching people how to teach dogs. We believe that great teachers possess both a solid knowledge of the science that governs learning, and honed practical abilities in both training dogs and teaching other people to train dogs. We also believe in giving our graduates the skills to succeed in their profession.
