If you are looking to try out a new career or just expand your knowledge for training your four-legged best friend, the Cochrane and Area Humane Society is offering the Positive Approach Canine Education (PACE) program. This unique to Cochrane program is for people who would like to get certified to become a professional dog trainer.

Lisa Kedian, Communications Coordinator for the Humane Society says that this program is unlike other courses offered. “If you are looking for a career change or you're looking for a little more fulfillment. This is a wonderful program and you're working with the people here at the shelter that we have our team are amazing behavior consultants and trainers and you will not get this type of training anywhere else."

"Basically, what you'll learn is things like behavior in different breeds and development stages for canine communication, how to understand dog to dog interaction and so much more than that.”

Hands-on time will be spent with various canines with the ultimate goal of accruing either CAHS Canine Handling Skills and Behaviour Knowledge Certificate or CAHS Canine Behaviour, Handling Skills & Instructor Certificate.

The application deadline for the PACE program is August 7, 2020, and you can register here.
