A comprehensive range of dog training and behaviour courses

Dog Behaviour and Dog Training Courses


Here at the CIDBT, we aim to nurture, develop, grow and assist people to reach the highest echelons in their career. All of our team are truly passionate about people and dogs.

We offer a programme of work-based, hands-on and Home Study courses in dog behaviour and training from the basic to the most advanced. Importantly, all of our tutors work in front line canine behaviour and various dog training disciplines (as well as being academically qualified) which enables them to share the very best and most effective real world information to all of our students in order for them to develop into successful professional practice.

We have a number of academic pathways to follow tailored to your individual requirements, expertly guided by our tutors who know that dogs and people learn better in a fun, motivational and supported environment.
