Now is an exciting time to join the canine training and performance industry. The global pet care market is booming and the growth rate for jobs within the animal sector is increasing rapidly. There’s a huge demand for talented graduates with a passion for animal training.
You’ll tailor your learning to your interests, analyse performance, and develop training plans. The Canine Training and Performance (Hons) degree from Hartpury University will focus on dogs, but you’ll also study other animals. Our 70-species Animal Collection provides plenty of opportunities to develop your experience with different species.
Benefit from our excellent industry connections with dog trainers, behaviourists, scientists and athletes across the UK – which could lead to placements, volunteering, field trips and inspirational guest speakers.
All training is underpinned by the strictest ethics and supported by the latest scientific evidence. This degree doesn’t qualify you to become a behaviourists or trainers. It exposes you to the key scientific principles underpinning animal training, performance and rehabilitation.
Industry opportunities on this course are diverse, to ensure you develop the skills, experience and connections needed for your graduate career. Many of our students are offered graduate roles with their work placement employers.
