Is Gaining 'Approved Instructor Status' Worth It?

There are a number of reasons why becoming a Dog Training College Approved Instructor is a good idea, here's just a few:

It's FREE! (and here's why!!!)

Approved Instructor Status is and will always be 100% FREE. Companies that charge a fee to accredit, approve or recognise dog trainers, however well intentioned they may have set out to be, benefit financially by having more members and therefore this can let the entry requirements slide. The DTC are able to remain impartial when approving instructors because they do not benefit financially.

Quality Assured

The DTC are the only dog training organisation to carry out Internal Quality Assurance checks on ALL of their Approved Instructors. This means that the DTC regularly asks for proof of qualifications, memberships and proof of insurance. They also regularly check instructor's websites, social media pages and student feedback. Instructors are told how they can improve if they fail an IQA and face losing their status if they do not make adequate improvements.


Approved Instructors are able to use the Approved Instructor badge and wear exclusive Approved Instructor clothing. 

The DTC brand has reached millions of dog owners worldwide, so aligning yourself with us will help create trust for your business.
