The British College of Canine Studies provide specialised canine related courses for anyone, worldwide, who is interested in pursuing a career working with dogs. Our courses are written and assessed by professionals currently working within the canine behaviour and training field. This assures our students that the course content is current and well informed, and will equip you with real world knowledge which you can put to use immediately upon completion.
At BCCS, our aim is to equip our students with all the information you will need to then go off and actually run a business in your chosen field. Many units come with an optional practical element which gives you a truly hands on experience.
Study your chosen subject in your own time, from the comfort of your own home, safe in the knowledge that the course you have enrolled upon is taught by professionals currently working in your chosen field.
Hundreds of students are already studying with us across the globe. To see what some of them think of our courses, visit our testimonials page.
MEET OUR TEAM
We may have an image of a large organisation, and we may have thousands of students around the world, including staff and volunteers at Battersea, Dogs Trust, RSPCA, Vet Nurses, Police and Military Dog Handlers and Council Dog Wardens to name a few, but we’re actually a very small team. We feel you should be able to enrol in the confidence that your tutor and the course authors are suitably experienced and qualified, and we look forward to getting to know you personally through your submissions, feedback, and optional hands-on experience days.
College Founder & CESSCAM Member
The British College of Canine Studies was established after our practicing dog behaviour therapists were horrified by the number of reports they received from clients regarding the ill informed and potentially dangerous advice being given by so-called ‘qualified’ practitioners. With the canine industry still very much unregulated, anyone wishing to call themselves a canine expert can legally do so. It is worrying that some accredited international colleges offer dog behaviour courses which are being assessed and marked by tutors from completely unrelated fields. We made the decision to set up a college run by practicing canine professionals, offering safe, intelligent and practical advice to enable students to become well informed in their field and offer excellent levels of service to their prospective clients.
All of our courses are online home study, with the option of trying out your newly acquired skills in the practical units offered in many cases. You have a full two years to complete your studies, so you can learn at your own pace, with full support from one of our professional tutors.
