Canine Behaviour College Admissions and Academics

Canine Behaviour College Training

Our tutors are all educated to degree level and beyond and they are committed to force free training and furthering animal welfare.

Operant conditioning has four quadrants of learning.  However, two of these quadrants should not be used if we are considering canine welfare.  We believe in force free training and all of our courses reflect this.  You will not find suggestions to use physical force or aversive ‘tools’ in our courses.

Many of our courses are distance learning, with no enrolment dates or time limits.  You are free to study at your own pace, with the ongoing support of a personal tutor. 

We believe it is not possible to know how to assess a dogs behaviour and develop an appropriate training plan without having the opportunity to observe, handle and work directly with dogs and their owners. This is why many of our courses contain  both theoretical and practical canine behaviour and training, which specifically develop students’ practical skills under the supervision of experienced practical tutors.

Sadly, there are no organisations, professional bodies or set qualifications that exist in the United Kingdom that govern or restrict the right to practise as a canine behaviour practitioner or dog trainer. 

There are numerous courses available online to train in this profession.  However, in order to ensure professional competence, we believe learning should involve both theoretical knowledge and practical application.

The four biggest animal and award institutions certify the courses that we provide. All are trusted organisations in the United Kingdom. 

We provide numerous other distance learning courses, each focused on a specific level of understanding and managing animal welfare and health conditions, training and assessing canines, as well as helping their owners learn how to ensure their wellbeing. We have both theoretical sessions and practical courses. Students also benefit from personalised professional advice provided on a continuous basis until the very end of the educational process.

Some of our courses require self-paced study hours. Assessments must be completed by occasionally carrying out research and working on certain tasks at your own pace. Needless to say, tutors are always available to provide assistance and support at any given time.

Academics and Time Tables

The practical aspects of our courses are delivered in traditional classroom settings. Students and instructors make use of multimedia and supplies that in order to enhance the learning opportunity and make it easier to grasp complex matters. PowerPoint presentations, discussions, group work and even distance-learning are employed to produce contemporary courses that just about everyone can benefit from.

On-Site Benefits

Tea, coffee and refreshments are provided throughout the weekends but you will need to book your own accommodation locally if needed and arrange meals.

We have partnered with several local B&B's who will offer a discounted price for weekends.
