Description: The most common question we receive at the APDT is "I want to be a dog trainer, but where do I begin?" Well, as most trainers know, anyone can hand out business cards and start charging money to train dogs. There are no credentials or education required. Unfortunately, the general public often doesn't realize this. Additionally, more trainers means more competition – so knowing your stuff can really help a trainer stand out from the crowd. In response to these issues and requests, the APDT has created this certificate course for anyone who is looking to become a dog trainer, as well as for those trainers who don't yet know this vital information. Rather than teach you how to train a solid recall, run a group class, or address dog aggression, this course will feature all of the information a good dog trainer should know before doing any of that stuff – before starting to offer services. We'll go in-depth into the history of dog training, current training methods, dog behavior and body language, credentialing and how to approach our human clients' behavior.
