What’s The Best Dog Obedience Instructor Course for me?

I have a great passion for dogs, and would love to start a dog obedience career.

What’s the best education for an aspiring dog obedience trainer? I’m currently looking into ICS Canada (http://www.icslearn.ca/dogobedience/index.html). How prestigious does it look to you?

If possible, I’d love to have on location training (around Ottawa or Montreal, Canada), but if you can’t find me a local school, I wouldn’t mind doing it over a distance.

Thank you!

    Look up Koehler dog training in your area. If you are lucky there may be an instructor up there that will be able to help train you in the finest obedience course in the world. Hope I helped!

    I am just finishing a course to be a certified dog obedience instructor through Penn Foster Online Career School. I love the program. The material is easy to understand and I can work at my own pace. There are also instructors available to help answer any additional questions or problems you may be having. You have plenty of time to finish the program and they offer an extention is you should need it for a small fee. I would look into it if I were you. They also send some training tools that you may keep as well as DVDs and books to further your understanding!

    honestly i don’t know, but my dogs’ trainer Sharlene Elsie owns CanineLife here in London, Ontario [6 hours from ottawa, about 7 from montreal] and she’s certified and an amazing trainer. you could email her and ask her how and where she got certified
    http://www.caninelife.ca/

    as far as ICS or any distance learning program like Penn Foster I do not recommend. sure you’ll be certified but will you have good training? most likely not

    its a new course too, so its most likely their first time running it and you’ll be one of the guinea pigs

    not sure other institions that have instructor courses so thats why i gave you Sharlene’s email. she’s an awesome young lady and has 3 dogs of her own

    sorry couldnt be more of help

    sharlene is a certifiied canine specialist.. it costs 120.00 and has nothing to do with dog training. she was trained at petsmart.. why dont you just go there too?
