About the Program

Working and performance dogs, as compared to their pet counterparts, have higher physical exertion demands, increased risk for injury, and greater exposure to hazardous substances. Veterinarians can expand their skills by learning how to effectively address these unique needs. The Working Dog Practitioner Program is designed to provide specialized instruction through online and hands-on learning. Instructors will include specialty certified practicing veterinarians with real life experience and subject matter experts in the working dog field. The Working Dog Practitioner Program will be RACE approved.
