GC204 – Advanced Canine Training for the Modern Dog Trainer


Progressive Dog Training

Shaping, marking and chaining are just three of the terms you’ll hear dog trainers and dog behaviourists use, but what are they and more importantly how and when do you apply them?

Buzz words and technical terms feature in this thought provoking distance learning course as well as practical application of how to deal with the most common and basic dog behaviour problems that crop up in the dog training class situation.

Upon completion of this distance learning course you will have the theory and the techniques needed to train a dog to the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Gold Award level and beyond.
