Specialized Pet Training Programs

Several years ago, PIJAC Canada had developed a series of specialized workshops to add to our members and non-members continuing education and knowledge.  The objective of these workshop was to review in more detail topics and information related to specific pets.  Since then, we have started the online conversion of these programs to make them available to all.

Dog Talk – Understanding Canines

This program is the first of four (4) specialized programs being converted to our online platform. People dealing with dogs on a regular basis need to have a clear understanding on how dogs behave and why. Knowing how genetics, environment and learning affect a dog’s behaviour will better equip dog professionals as well as dog owners in handling, training and managing behaviour. Learning to decipher canine body language and communication will help the human-canine relationship function in a more respectful and peaceful manner.

Benefits to taking this program

Our Dog Talk program is designed to help people, who work with dogs or who encounter dogs on a daily basis, increase and refine their knowledge so that they can offer the best and safest care possible. Earning a Dog Talk attestation is an excellent way to show to your clients your dedication to the well being of their dogs.
