Program Description
The Working Dog Practitioner Program is comprised of four sections: Introduction: Online Modules, Core, Electives, and Preceptorship. It is a combination of online and hands-on learning that allows veterinarians to become certified in working and performance dog medicine on their own timeline. Students may register for each section one at a time, but they must be completed in the prescribed order. Not sure if this program is for you? Try out the first module for FREE.
