The TASK-9 Professional Working and Service Dog Trainers (WSDT) Course is without question, the most comprehensive and advanced professional working and service dog trainer certification program in the world today. No other course gives participants such a complete education in virtually every facet of the working dog world.
The WSDT course is, in effect, a combination of virtually all of our training courses; from scent detection, obedience and technical skills, through to Law Enforcement, tracking and search roles. Successful graduates will not only receive full certification for the WSDT program but also additional qualifications / certifications for each of the specialist courses.
Our courses do not focus on training domestic obedience or dogs for competition. TASK-9 training is designed for the practical application of skill development for dogs employed in working and services roles, and those persons that are looking for the best education in dog training and behaviour modification available
Course instructors include some of the world’s leading experts on dog behaviour, breeding and training. You will also learn directly from highly experienced Law Enforcement and detection agency trainers, ensuring you get real time training, not just the theory!
In addition to extensive practical training with dogs, the program also covers detailed learning on psychology and behaviour, reinforcement theory, animal learning processes, welfare and canine care.
