Online Training Courses

Dog in the Workplace - Employers


To help employers and employees share their workspace with dogs in a responsible and safe way, the National Pet College has launched the unique Dogs in the Workplace online course. The course guides learners through a six-step process to allow them to overcome the challenges and develop a positive, dog friendly culture.

The course is divided into two components: one for the employer and one for the employee. Both parts will ensure sensible and robust procedures are in put place that protect the business, other workers, clients and help safeguard the welfare of the dogs themselves.

The course comes with a downloadable toolkit containing editable examples of the recommended paperwork including a risk assessment, code of conduct and goodness of fit behavioural assessment.
