VALENCIA, CA, USA, Aug. 26, 2022 / — Today on their Facebook, Instagram, Tik Tok and Twitter pages, Animal Behavior College (ABC) posted an announcement accepting new registrations for their in-person classes Canine Obedience Instructor Training Program starting October 3.

ABC’s on-site, in-person Canine Obedience Instructor Training Program is a five-month dog training course held at their campus in Santa Clarita, California. Students taking the course will learn in an individual, fully immersive, in-person classroom environment. They will work with dogs at a local animal shelter and apply their dog training skills in a hands-on, real-life setting. ABC also offers an online option of this course, but with the in-person classroom, students can work with dogs within days of starting the course. In contrast, the online option works with dogs later in the program during a clinic, just before taking their final exam.

Many online dog training schools can take around a year, but because the in-person dog training course is fully immersive and students can interact with their instructor, other students, and physically work with dogs, students are accelerated on their educational path to certify in 5 months. Students in the program will study everything from canine behavior and canine body language to effective behavioral problem solving. Knowing that many students are looking to kick-start their careers or even change career directions mid-life, ABC includes public speaking and business building courses in its curriculum designed to help students get started. their career as dog trainers after graduation. The course teaches LIMA-compliant (less invasive, minimally aversive) training techniques and emphasizes the need to understand the motivations behind a dog’s behavioral problems. Students will receive a CPR and Pet First Aid certificate valid for 2 years in addition to their Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer certification, which never expires.

For more than 17 years, ABC’s “Students Save Lives” campaign has been an integral part of dog training. ABC’s dog training students will train and socialize dogs at local animal shelters, humane societies and rescue organizations, increasing the dog’s chances of being adopted. This rewarding part of the program will help students put their newly acquired knowledge and skills into practice and change the lives of many dogs forever.

Seth Hutson, an instructor for ABC’s Classroom Canine Obedience Instructor Training program, has extensive experience working with dogs. He has 22 years of combined law enforcement and Army/National Guard service where he helped the K-9 unit train their military police dogs. Additionally, he owns and operates the dog training company Pawsitively Great Dog Training, located in the Santa Clarita Valley, where he helps dogs in need.
