Joel Silverman’s What Color is Your Dog?® Dog Trainer Certification Course #1 (JSDT1) is a FIVE DAY HANDS ON dog training course, which gives students the opportunity to learn about the fundamentals and methods that go into becoming a dog trainer, and most importantly, get HANDS ON experience under one of the best. One of the questions we get is, “why is the course only five days, when other courses are three to six months?”
One of the differences between Joel Silverman’s What Color is Your Dog?® Dog Trainer Certification Course and other online dog training courses is that students that attend this course spend 90% of the time working with a variety of dogs with different personalities. This is the only course that gives students the opportunity to learn one on one with Joel Silverman. Other courses require hours of written online teaching over the course of months; yet only give the student a small percentage of time with the mentor or trainer. Who is the mentor the students learn from? Bad habits that trainers develop often come from the fact that they never learned the right way from the very beginning from their teacher, and never got a grasp of a good foundation. No other course gives the students the chance to work hands on with seasoned veteran dogs like Joel’s dog Duchess, who starred with him in the Chase Bank national commercial. Successful dog trainers will tell you that having the practical experience overshadows any reading, writing, or learning online. Students will be required to learn from documents, however, the majority of learning will come from practical dog training. No other online dog trainer certification course gives the students the opportunity to actually have their hands on a number of untrained dogs with a variety of personalities, and teach these six essential basic behaviors from start to finish, in just a week. Every student will have their hands on every dog at every stage of every behavior from start to finish.
