CIDBT 5005W Advanced Professional Instructor Skills
This two-day workshop is designed to enhance knowledge to manage and teach as a professional Instructor.
This workshop is focussed on raising the bar, ‘upping your game’ and developing a unique, bespoke and amazing product. Dog training classes are in every town, so why would people come to you? Typically, this is via referral and recommendations because you deliver tangible results.
The two days will consist of class room style learning to include film and demonstration lead learning, interactive discussions, together with spending the majority of the time working your own dogs, instructing your peers, as well as observing other students giving instruction within a fun and friendly environment.
This is all about working as a Professional Dog Training Instructor. Naturally most people who enter this occupation do so with a love of dogs, but that is not the only requirement to be able to make a living and really help people to train their dogs. Not all dogs are malleable, willing to learn or social and outgoing. A sound understanding of breed specific behaviour and learning is essential as well as an understanding and empathy of differing canine learning styles and developmental processes and owners varying abilities.
This workshop covers the following and much more
- Breed specific behaviour and learning
- Canine learning styles and development
- Instruction styles
- Managing difficult dogs in the class environment
- The Assistant
- Advanced Instruction
- Presentation skills
- Class layout and getting optimum results

This workshop is held at the Kennel Club Building, Warwickshire.
“I was looking to change career’s and follow my passion into the dog industry.
I looked at many courses then I found CIBDT. I live up in the North East and these courses where down South. It was one of the best decisions I made and the travel just became part of an exciting journey.
I’ve lost count how many courses I took online and participant in classroom environments and practical workshops. I’ve met fellow students that have gone on to be life long friends.
Education has to be informative and reach everyone on a personal level. The environment has to be friendly, inviting and comfortable. These courses met all this criteria and more.
I’ve gone on to work with rescue’s and dog’s with behaviour struggles from traumatic backgrounds and experiences and writing behaviour modification plan’s for rehabilitation. My confidence grew by choosing these courses with CIBDT giving me the tools to choose my own path in the dog industry and giving me the opportunity to learn and enjoy at the same time.”
