hey, sorry if this post has been done, i check 200 thread first.

i was wondering if anyone could direct me to a credible dog trainer certification program? is there any in canada (to teach people how to be dog trainers). how does one find out about the credibility of a program or that is legit? it's actually for a friend. thanks,

I'm assuming you're talking about obedience training, right? Dog training itself, and more specifically the legitimacy thereof is subjective, so it really comes down to your views(ie: humane vs inhumane) and the results garnered from a particular trainer/orgranization.

However, here are a few places to start:

 None that I'm aware of unless you're talking about canine 'behavior'.


The closest equivalent to training licensure I can think of off-hand would be certification from the Tom Rose school in Missouri: http://tomrose.com/
