All 2021 courses have been adapted for Covid safe delivery

Introductory & Specialist Puppy Classes

Introductory classes are open to people who would like to investigate our training, ask questions, and see if our courses may be a good fit for themselves and their dogs. These classes are also a great way to get your puppy started on the right paw!

Preparation Class

Are you enrolled into one of our upcoming courses? Are you preparing your dog to work as a therapy, emotional support or assistance/service dog? This is the class for you! We will help to prepare both you and your dog for the upcoming intensive training programme.

Graduates Training Classes

If you have previously trained or Certified with us, you’re eligible to attend group classes! Keep up your skills in a friendly and supportive Maintenance class with other graduates. Alternatively try our Extension class. These classes will help you to develop your skills to the next level in preparation for Advanced Certification, and keep you learning more even after completing your advanced training.

Adapting to COVID-19.
Certification in a post coronavirus pandemic world

In response to the changes happening in the world right now, we acknowledge the importance of companion animals. Now more than ever, humans and animals are benefiting from their unique and special bonds. Whilst the restrictions in place may alter the way we train, we can still find ways to enhance your knowledge of the human animal bond and your skills in facilitating the bond. We have therefore developed a suite of flexible and online learning options for our students throughout Australia and the world.

 

Lead The Way Institute’s brand new online courses will provide you with stand-alone Certifications, whilst also forming the pre-requisites for more advanced study. The online courses form a seamless pathway into our brand new practical, face to face, Certifications
