Important Notice

Please note that you must be 18 years of age or older, have a current tetanus shot, and be in good physical health for this program.

Through this course, our goal is to ensure you receive quality, current information on dog behaviour, dog body language, current training techniques and, of course, dealing with people.  Upon completion of this course, you will receive your DBTM certificate, making this program ideal for anyone who is looking to start their own canine training business.

The Edmonton Humane Society is the best facility for you to gain experience with a variety of dog behaviour issues, while giving you access to experts who work with them. A high percentage of owners relinquish their dogs to shelters due to behaviour concerns. And most of these issues are manageable!

This program is for people – do not bring your own dog to class. They will not be admitted as you will be working with animals in our care at EHS.
