Canine Attendant Training

Safe, positive and healthy human to dog interactions start with learning to understand and speak their language.  This full day course is uniquely designed for Veterinary Technicians, Kennel Attendants, Doggy Daycare Attendants, Professional Dog Walkers, and Animal Care Professionals and is broken down into 3 main components; Canine Behaviour, Canine Self Defense and Dog to Dog Aggression.  Throughout the day participants will learn how to read canine body language, understand vocal communication, identify their emotional state as well as how to change their emotional state to promote safety for both animal and handler.  The Canine Self Defense portion of this course equips the participants with the skills to defuse a volatile dog, safely break up a dog fight and protect themselves in the event they are attacked by a dog.  Other topics covered include; early warning signs that a dog may pose as a safety risk to another dog, common signs of dog to dog aggression, effectively monitoring play to promote healthy play styles and how to facilitate play between poorly socialized dogs.

Canine Foundations is proud to offer 5 OAVT (Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians), 8 CCPDT (Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers) and 8 IAABC (International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants) Continuing Education Credits for Canine Attendant Training.
