If you are interested in working in the animal field, whether you want to start your own rescue organization, dog walking, boarding or sitting business, become a professional groomer, veterinarian, or animal health technician then our PACE program may be perfect for you!
In fact, anyone interested in dogs and learning about dog behaviours would benefit from PACE.
What is PACE?
Positive Approach Canine Education (PACE) is a program designed to give participants a solid knowledge of learning theory and the practical abilities needed to effectively communicate with and handle dogs. Our training style is based on humane training practices, mutual respect between dog and the handler, and proven methods using positive reinforcement techniques.
PACE combines classroom learning with the power of hands on teaching and skill development through monthly workshops and weekly meets with a personal mentor to practice, hone and test participants’ skills. Students learn how to effectively apply theory and classroom learning to real life situations where dogs of various breeds and ages need training and behaviour modification to either successfully stay in homes or be re-homed.
Our program is fun, flexible and in-depth. What else makes our program unique from others? We have the ability to provide more practical, hands-on experience with a wide variety of dogs through the shelter. You do not need your own dog to participate in this program.
