    Course details

    Summary

    Learn to care for and train man’s best friend by studying canine behaviour and training. Explore what influences canine behaviour and husbandry, develop your knowledge of the roles and requirements of canine-related industries in New Zealand, and apply your knowledge through practical training in our dog agility facility.

    Programme overview

    With growing public and legislative interest concerning the management of animals (dogs in particular), canine-related industries are on the lookout for work-ready graduates. Study our canine behaviour and training programme and you’ll develop the technical and transferable skills needed to work in canine-related industries.

    Begin to understand and recognise canine behaviour, develop your skills to be able to manage day-to-day canine health and husbandry in a training environment, and apply your knowledge to train a variety of dogs in a range of disciplines. Learn about health and safety planning, the ethics, philosophies and regulatory procedures that surround the canine industries as well as develop an understanding of the Animal Welfare Act as it applies to all animals in New Zealand, specifically to dogs.

    You’ll also develop a broad understanding of the anatomy and husbandry of a range of animals which enables you to provide them with general care.

    • A hands-on approach focusing on practical experience in many aspects of canine obedience and training
    • Extensive practical training in Unitec’s on-campus dog agility and fenced “off-leash” areas, and field work in selected off-campus environments
