30 Days of Canine Science

The ultimate blend of science and skills... challenge yourself to be better!

Applying the science is a gift that only the most skilled trainers are capable of. We want to give you that gift.

The 30 Days of Canine Science will provide each student with a dedicated 'Geek Out' and a 'Skill Up' every day for 30 days.

The 'Geek Out' will focus on explanations and applications of both simple and complex training theory. This is then perfectly complemented with the 'Skill Up' that will provide trainers with an exercise to do with a dog that delves into the application of the theoretical concept covered earlier in the module.

When we started SoCs online we pledged that we would raise the bar when it comes to the practical skills and the theoretical understanding of our students. This 30 day training challenge will teach you key training concepts and then give you specific structured exercises so that you can learn to use the theory within your practices, today and every day following this.

Understanding what you are doing, rather than relying on raw natural training talent, is key so that you can identify what has worked and why, and then repeat it. It opens the flood gates to refining practical skills and perfecting fast, smart effective training.

Understanding the theories pinned behind how and why training may be effective and why it can sometimes falls apart is a responsibility we have when we are charging owners.

However, an inability to practically apply that training to individual dogs in a training environment makes just understanding those theories pretty pointless.

Take the 30 Days of Canine Science challenge and learn new skills each and every day for a month. Develop mechanics, experiment with outcomes and switch up the order and environment when you are training to ensure your ability to train your own dog, as well as those of your customers

This course is for anyone with a passion and dedication to learning how to train dogs effectively.

You'll never look back #30DaysofCanineScience
