Structure of the dog trainer with positive feedback course

The course, held at the Human & Dog Center is spread over six months with two classes each week. In total, the course includes 300 hours (academic) of theoretical and practical study, lectures, practical exercises and sessions at the homes of Human & Dog Center customers.

During the course, each student will work with an expert trainer so that they will be able to observe, first hand and in the customer’s home environment, the processes used in the positive feedback approach. The student benefits from a personal trainer throughout the course!

As part of the Human & Dog Center’s course, students will work in the field and receive payment for their work. This will give them firsthand experience of the world of dogs and dog training in Israel that will transform them into senior dog trainers using the positive feedback approach.

As a school, we are committed to personal and individual tutoring so that each student can obtain maximum results and realize their full potential.

Students who successfully complete the dog trainer course will be awarded a certificate by the Human & Dog Center certifying that they are a “Dog Trainer and Canine Behavioral Therapist”.

As we provide dog trainer courses based on positive feedback, we recommend that all of our students use this same approach. However, as part of the course, students will learn all the methods for training dogs in use today. Having an in-depth knowledge of all training methods enables our graduates to be the ultimate professionals in their field.

Studying to be a dog trainer - Why learn at the Human & Dog Center?

In every class, theoretical and practical, our instructors don’t have a stop watch in their hands or use a timer.

Students at the Human & Dog Center understand that our courses are special. We treat our students as equals with the aim being to develop to the fullest each student’s abilities and potential by helping them understand and develop their own personal approach. That’s why our dog trainer courses are small scale and personal.  In this way, the student can achieve even higher levels of professionalism by the end of the course.

Course graduates, if they feel they need to refresh or strengthen their skills, can always attend any workshop/trip/activity/theoretical or practical class and practice as much as they want at our kennels. This is all part of the Human & Dog Center’s working ethic in its relationships with dog trainers who learned their skills and techniques at the center.

** Once a month the center arranges a special, evening lecture to which all past and present students are invited. This is an evening where people can get together, exchange experiences and ideas regarding dog training where, every month, there are new ideas to discuss and develop.
