K9 Trainer & Instructor Courses

Because of the increasing dog population and lack of good qualified trainers, K9 Solutions Center offers a professional dog Trainer/Instructor course. As a Student Trainer/Instructor, you will not only learn how to train all types of dogs, but will also be able to instruct other people how to train their dogs. Our teaching theory is for us to, “Train you to train your dog”. As a professional trainer, you will be able to pass this theory on, and build a strong training structure. A career in dog training can be satisfying and rewarding.

Fixed Course

The course is structured in the form of an apprenticeship. Most training courses are expensive and the majority of the training takes place in a classroom. Our apprenticeship is 90% hands on. You will learn all phases of basic and advanced obedience, behavior modification, housebreaking, puppy training, among numerous other areas. We do not hold large classes in order to allow for more one-on-one teaching. We generally keep the class size to two participants at a time. This also gives the participant more opportunity to have substantial time with numerous dogs and to practice teaching. A certificate and a course outline showing your education is issued upon successful completion.

Custom Course

Our custom course allows you to choose the topics you want to cover, and the length of the trainer’s course is determined by what you choose. Right now we are running a lot of detection courses, and they are running 1 or 2 weeks. 1 week for experienced handlers and 2 weeks for trainers with less experience. All courses are $750 per week. Lodging is not included, but available in the area for about $200 per 7 day week.
