Hands on Experience

Hands on experience is a requirement of the course. As part of the one on one training, the instructor will have at least two dogs that require pick up, drop off, and walking at the same time. This is to ensure that you’ll have the experience of working with more than a single animal at a time, so you have a better chance to succeed.

Safety is another section that is touched on in this course. The instructor will take the time to give the student a deeper understanding of how to read warning signs with canines, and what can be done in order to avoid bites and one of the animals attacking another. This keeps everyone in your care safe. If something does happen, the course explores the best approach to take in order to prevent injuries from becoming worse, and to reduce the risk of suffering a devastating loss of life.

It is important to remember that while pet sitters and dog walkers do have an incredible job that allows them to spend time with canines, it isn’t the only option there is. When the student finishes the course, they will understand this and will have a foundation of knowledge that they will have a chance to begin building their business from. Even those who are simply interested in working with dogs in general, or just want to enhance the experience they have with their own animals in the home will find this course is one that they won’t want to miss.
