KPA’s Dog Trainer Foundations course offers a comprehensive foundation of knowledge and skill in the modern, effective way of training—without using punishment or force. In six weeks or less, students will:
- Understand the science behind marker-based (clicker) training
- Gain the skills needed to train simple and complex behaviors, without the need for corrections
- Learn to replace undesired behaviors with desired behaviors
- Gain a deeper understanding of dog behavior
- and much more!
Students can start the course anytime, from anywhere—at their own pace—with teacher support along the way. Students desiring even more support and coaching can consider the Dog Trainer Foundations Immersion course, which offers the same curriculum but includes five hours of online personalized coaching.
“KPA is the worldwide leader in positive reinforcement training, which is why we are excited to be spearheading KPA’s education initiatives for the Korean dog training community,” said Alex Lee. “I am looking forward to introducing pet caregivers to the power of modern, effective training methods, empowering them to learn new ways to train and communicate with their dogs—and have fun in the process.”
“I am thrilled to have these highly skilled trainers offer our courses to the Korean dog training community,” adds Ken Ramirez, Executive Vice President & Chief Training Officer, Karen Pryor Academy. “They are helping us continue Karen's vision of making positive reinforcement training easily accessible worldwide.”
