Letter K, Number 9: part 4

Aspiring to be a Professional Dog Trainer:

Yes. That is my goal: to become a professional dog trainer. I want to teach new skills to people and animals so they can be the best they can be, helping each other live life to the fullest. I would like to specialize in the training of service dogs for people with physical disabilities.

I am interested in all aspects of the dog training world: training, behaviour and learning; health and welfare; selection and placement; the active building of a partnership between dog and handler and their community; and professional and public education.

Types of Service Dogs:

  • Assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities
  • Guide, Seizure Alert, Hearing and Diabetic Alert
  • Autism, Psychiatric/Emotional Support
  • Police, Canine Assisted Intervention, and Detection
  • Therapy and Facility
  • SAR and Detection

The list goes on! And it’s fascinating!

Dog Sports:

  • Tracking
  • Herding
  • Obedience
  • Agility

The list goes on, again!

What’s Important:

  • Reaching and maintaining a high level of training and engagement
  • Ongoing positive experiences in education and learning
  • Community involvement and lasting partnerships
  • Safety and professionalism.

And that, my friends is that! 🙂
