Karen Pryor Academy's Dog Trainer Professional program offers an in-depth distance learning curriculum that explores the theoretical and practical aspects of animal training, teaching, and business set-up, along with a five-day practical workshop.

Students are required to complete both practical and written assignments and assessments, and attend the workshop. They have the full support of their experienced and skilled KPA-accredited faculty mentor.

This comprehensive nine-month course will give all you the knowledge and skills you need to attain to the highest standards of positive reinforcement training, effectively teach these skills to others, and run a successful dog training business.

The DTP is based on the most up-to-date behaviour science, taking you through all levels, from foundation knowledge to advanced concepts in animal training, and also covers behaviour management solutions.
