EMMETT Technique Practitioner Dog training is designed for qualified animal professionals, dog owners and anyone interested in extending their skills. The dog practitioner course is divided into two-day learning blocks, called Levels with 5 Levels in total. Material covered in the previous Level is reviewed before new work is covered. This ensures that all participants are up to date and ready to learn new material. The total course therefore consists of 11 days.

This course is recognised by the International Association of Animal Therapists and the Complementary Health Professionals (CHP).

Level Course Structure

  • Level 1 – Two days of learning both Dog and Handler corrections.
  • Level 2 – First day review of Level 1, second day new Level 2 work.

  • Level 5 – First day review of Level 4, second day new Level 5 work.
  • Level 5 Assessment -At Level 5 Review, a written & practical assessment will be offered and a Certificate of Proficiency will be awarded when a pass is achieved. This qualifies the participant as an EMMETT Technique Dog Practitioner. Assessment is optional. A Certificate of Attendance is provided where the participant is not assessed.

Further info

Levels are generally offered 6 – 8 weeks apart in any 1 location to allow participants to gain real experience with the technique between levels. Therefore, it is usually possible to complete the full course within 12 months. The course can be completed sooner if a student wishes to do so and is willing to travel.
