The Kennel Club Accredited Instructor scheme (KCAI) continues to
raise and set standards of dog training and advice in the UK with
the recent introduction of the latest accreditation module in
Companion Dog (CD) Sport.
This new qualification is aimed at instructors holding classes
for pet owners who enjoy activities such as agility or gundog work
but do not necessarily want to prepare for competition.
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said: "Fun 'pet' agility
is soaring in popularity as the activity, which we regulate,
continues to attract more competitors, dogs and media attention
than ever before. The KCAI Companion Dog Sport module
provides another national quality mark and recognised standard to
work towards, ensuring that Accredited Instructors can offer a
safe, knowledgeable and professional service for pet owners."
The KCAI scheme is the first and only scheme in the UK for dog
instructors to be approved by City & Guilds NPTC. The KCAI
currently offers a City & Guilds qualification in a variety of
areas in the dog world, from Companion Dog Training and Behavioural
advice through to Rescue and Rehoming, Assistance Dogs, Dog Wardens
and many more.
Accreditation in Companion Dog Sport requires sufficient
understanding of dogs in general, the teaching of good control and
safe methodology in a way that is in the dog and owner's best
interests, and will give instructors further opportunities to
promote the positive benefits of dog training to the wider
