For the first time in Australia, Steve and Vicki Austin are launching a new dog training portal for many aspects of professional dog training.

By utilising all methods of technology available today, individuals around the country will have the opportunity to train directly with Steve and Vicki Austin, world renowned dog trainer. A mix of online classroom training, webinars and practical sessions, will be accessible to everyone. Practical sessions will be scheduled regularly and wherever possible, in different states.

The structure of the course will allow access anywhere in Australia where an internet connection is available, making regional and local services of a detection dog to become more viable.

Training and Assessment Videos for the CDC

Have you seen a professionally trained dog going through the paces before for conservation detection work starts? With focus, dedication and some hard work, you could achieve this level also and a great place to start is with the TAFE courses!

Demands for conservation detection dogs are increasing so it is imperative to establish a minimum standard at which a detection dog is expected to deliver.

The Canine Detection Certification has been created to establish a benchmark of a performance minimum so that government departments, private organisations, and handlers can be readily identified as being assessed and highly proficient in their target odour(s).
