If you are age 15 or older and would like to learn how to train service dogs, the FSDS SD Trainer Academy is for you. This innovative program is open to any individual in the U.S. interested in acquiring marketable job skills as a SD trainer. Students can earn credentials at four different levels:
- Novice Instructor
- Jr. Instructor
- Sr. Instructor
- Master Instructor
Unlike other programs that only teach obedience training, the FSDS program is a comprehensive program designed to give individuals the skills to start and maintain a training business. We teach skills from early puppy training up to advanced service dog training skills, teaching strategies and classroom management, nutrition, grooming, behavior, canine first aid and CPR and a host of other topics.
There are three required courses at each level that can be done online from the comfort of your home. There is a requirement for 75 hours of hands on experience at each level that may be completed with a trainer in your area. The Academy will open on June 1st of this year.
