The 12 week time frame allows for approximately 2 hours a week of time dedicated to the course as well as one flex week. One of the course projects requires training two service dog tasks. This project can be challenging and depending on the student’s skill set, some students may need to allow more time than others.
All discussion and feedback is done via email or via the class discussion areas. Students can work on the course, ask questions and participate in discussions during times that fit their schedules.
Many students complete the course with a couple of weeks to spare. The course was designed for the busy working professional and the majority of our graduates run their own dog training businesses. The course is self-paced, so students can dedicate more hours some weeks and less others. However, this also means students need to have good time-management skills and schedule their work appropriately.
