Dogma proudly offered the first of its kind full dog training apprenticeship program in Canada in 2009. Since then, there have been over 100 successful graduates of the program. These graduates finish our program with over 400 hours of theory and hands-on learning to make them the most reputable and sought-after certified trainers in Calgary. Graduates who earn their DCBC (dogma Certified Behaviour Consultant) designation have gone on to be recruited by many of Calgary’s large dog training schools or have created their own successful dog training businesses. Our program is committed to providing you with the most comprehensive skills to ensure you have the confidence and experience to succeed in this exciting career. This is proven through the success of our graduates.
Our program has been updated and new material has been added. All theoretical learning is now available online to enable you to study at your own pace. We listened and will be offering both an online (TBA) and apprenticeship option for our program.
