The advanced module is the first in Britain that has a one day dog handling workshop, advancing your knowledge of theory including law.

A behaviour section introduces you to general dog behaviour problems that you may encounter and deal with when a new dog is not quite what you might expect. Without doubt you will learn and be prepared for an enjoyable occupation, or simply verify your current status as a knowledgeable dog carer in and outside your clients' homes.

Upon completion of the module you will understand responsibilities and pet handling skills, dog handling and walking, meeting breeds of dogs and learning basic handling and instruction skills.

Phase 1 Content

Pet sitting theory advanced

Understand routine care for fish (cold water and tropical).

Understand routine care for rabbits & guinea pigs as pets.

Understand routine care for reptiles and amphibians.

Understand routine care for rodents.

Law in the outside world and your responsibilities

Dog walking equipment – rapid use in emergencies common behaviour problems you may encounter with the dogs you walk or dogs you may meet in public places.

Dog spotting friend or foe – a behavioural assessment of oncoming dogs

Phase 2 Content

Business development advanced

An overview of business and marketing techniques to increase trade and establishing a successful business that puts pets first.

This section offers a moderate advanced understanding of the dogs mind and moreover it looks at established dog behaviour in the home that sometimes you find difficult to cope with.

Outside the home is obviously a greater challenge, dogs become active and inquisitive, this is their time and they need watching just like small children and we are responsible for their behaviour and actions in a public place.

Phase 3 Content (An alternate Phase 3 can be by distance learning if you choose)

The CIDBT provide the oly workshop for dog walking in Britain. This workshop is a relaxed, fun day covering basic dog handing and dog training techniques; most importantly, you get a chance to put into practice some theories you’ve learned in Phases 1 and 2.

This phase includes:

The workshop is held at the Kennel Club Building Refreshments are provided throughout the day and lunch is available for purchase if required. There are 2 dates for workshops per year and you will be working alongside other students from a similar module.
