School for Trainers

Ever dream of becoming a professional dog trainer?

D.O.W Dog Training School for Professional Dog Trainers is a state approved school that offers certification in the science of dog training. Whether you have prior experience in dog training or want to learn a new career path, our certified instructors can teach you a variety of proven and innovative dog training techniques.

Becoming a dog trainer

Combining a sound knowledge of animal behaviour and practical teaching ability, a career as a dog trainer can be hugely gratifying—professionally and emotionally.


Becoming a successful dog trainer requires a number of key personal attributes including:

  • A clear speaking voice
  • Good listening
  • Excellent time management
  • Patience
  • Stamina
  • Compassion
  • Critical thinking
  • Problem-solving ability
  • Determination
  • A genuine love for animals

Understanding the sciences of training together with a solid knowledge of dog breeds and their characteristics is essential for dog trainers. However they also need to recognise what is it they are trying to achieve with the owner and the dog.

You have to be passionate about your work, eager to learn and love dogs, of course. It also helps to be empathetic and a very good listener and observer.

Where can this career path take you?

At D.O.W Dog Trainer’s Academy, you have the benefit of being immersed in a training environment-something that you simply do not have with home study courses.  Here you will receive supervised hands-on learning with immediate feedback from your instructors.  Understanding that not all dogs are alike, we teach multiple methods to equip you to handle a variety of training issues.  You will also have the opportunity to work with rescue dogs, giving you real-world experience with dogs of varying temperaments.  We also teach you how to instruct and work with people, not just dogs, so you will be more confident when working with future clients. Our well-rounded approach thoroughly prepares you for a future career in professional dog training.
