A holistic approach to dog training and building a symbiotic relationship.

The opportunity to work with our expert tutors is one of the aspects of our programmes that candidates say is most valuable. Some candidates may only wish to participate in these sessions and are not seeking a professional qualification so it is possible to come along to just the practical elements of some modules at a lower cost than the normal module fee. Many experienced dog trainers, dog behaviour practitioners or other persons who work in the canine industry simply wish to learn other new or established methodologies that work.

The Kennel Club Accreditation Scheme

The Kennel Club Accreditation Scheme for instructors in training and canine behaviour is a membership scheme open to anyone working or wishing to work in the area of dog training and canine behaviour. All modules are accepted towards accreditation within this scheme including P courses.

This module

This module, as a natural follow on from Basic Dog Handling & Training Skills and as a stepping stone to Professional Instructor Skills & Management, looks at dog training essentials (the core exercises that owners need to teach) to the more refined, fun and useful exercises that can enhance ones’ life and relationship with a dog.

You’ll learn about things such as; classical and operant conditioning, real-world versus competition, fun and non-essential training, dog training myths and reality, how to successfully train a dog, breed specific training needs, training obstacles, shaping, proofing, chaining, marking and a whole host of other important dog training terminology.

This workshop only module is held at the Kennel Club Education centre in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire.


An intensive, but relaxed, fun and informative day covering all aspects of level 4 dog training. Looking at both ends of the lead, and most importantly, you get a chance to put into practice training dogs to various levels. Students are expected to bring a dog with them and will be sent a form to complete about their dog.

This single phase includes:
