Vocational
Dog Training

Professional dog training is a rewarding and interesting career, which can lead to jobs such as teaching pet owners how to train their own animals, to training dogs for specific tasks, such as assistance or police dogs.

People interested in becoming dog trainers can gain education through vocational and private schools, which most often offer a certification from a nationally-recognized dog training organization, such as the American Kennel Club or the United Kennel Club.

Classes can include basic biological study of canines, obedience cues, problem solving and animal safety. In addition, schools may offer marketing and business courses to help dog trainers start their own businesses. Courses can help students earn certifications in specific dog training careers, such as K-9 training, narcotic/explosives training, kennel management and more.

Clearly, dog trainers will interact with canines, owners and the general public on a regular basis. Professionals may be teaching dogs to learn commands, exercising the animals, or correcting specific behaviors. Dog trainers may have their own business, or work for animal shelters or veterinarians.
