CATCH Canine Trainers Academy Certificate Program  
As a professional pet sitter, it is critical to speak the language of the animals in your care. If we can interpret what they are signaling and feeling, we will be able to make excellent decisions regarding safety, stress, and the ability to execute walks and care successfully.
In this two-part certificate course, you will learn to recognize signs of arousal, stress, aggression and friendliness using specific body language cues such as in the ears, eyes, lips, and tail, while also seeing key big picture signals and what they mean such as facial orientation and balance. You will learn to interpret the results of your observations so you can make smart decisions for your safety and that of the dogs in your care.
Studies will cover dog-to-dog interactions as well as dog-to-human interactions. We will review the language coming from the dogs, but also learn the signals that you can give which dogs will understand and respond to. This course will not only make your work more fascinating and effective, but it will earn you a certificate you can showcase on your website and in your marketing materials.
