Dog Handler to Day Trainer Course

This standalone course DOES NOT include access to our Dog Handler Academy monthly membership. If you are interested in a monthly membership, please view our membership plans.

Could your facility use a couple extra thousand dollars of revenue a month?
Simply carving out 1–2 hours for your dog handlers’ time a day and using treats, collar, and a leash is all it would take. 

If you could train your rockstar dog handler employees further, they could be an even more valuable asset for you and your business. In fact, they could help you create a new stream of revenue for your business. 

This is why we felt it was the perfect time to create our Dog Handler to Day Trainer course. With this course, each of your current rockstar dog handler employees can learn how to be a day trainer. We also provide you (as the facility owner or manager) with videos, resources, and ideas on how to create (or improve) your dog day training program.

 

Skills and Commands

At the end of the Dog Handler to Day Trainer course, employees must submit a video that shows them as the trainer with a dog, demonstrating the following items they’ve learned from this course: 

  • Walking the dog, calling the dog’s name, and giving the dog treats along the walk 
  • General loose leash walking (without using the dog’s name) 
  • An example with “wait” command (e.g., enter/exit through a door with the dog with the dog waiting to enter/exit) 
  • An example with “anh-anh” command and spatial pressure  

With the purchase of our Dog Handler to Day Trainer course, you will receive:

  • One (1) user (employee) license for the Dog Handler to Day Trainer course (for your employee to access the course).
  • Facility dashboard access (where you as the facility administrator can view employee progress).
  • Facility access to the Dog Handler to Day Trainer standalone course and our exclusive day training videos and resources for you as the facility owner/manager.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Access to the course is revoked 60 (sixty) days after the employee has completed the course for both you and the employee. (Access will be granted again if you purchase a new license for another employee.)
