It’s hard to believe it, but we’re in July already! And at the Main Campus at the School for Dog Trainers, that means one thing – the start of a new semester for the students undertaking our Master Dog Trainer program. Over the coming months, Class 60 will study a comprehensive six-month program covering all aspects of dog training, mixing classroom theory with hands-on experience.
Our team loves to welcome a wide variety of students from across the globe, and this semester is no different. However, there is one student in Class 60 who has traveled a very, very long way for this class. 9,841 miles, to be precise.
Christine Ho is from Singapore, and is the lucky recipient of our 2021 International Dog Trainer Scholarship. Christine was chosen from a field of very strong applicants. To be eligible for the International Scholarship, applicants must be a citizen of a country other than the United States, and explain how they would use their knowledge after graduation.
To learn more, we interviewed Christine to understand her perspective on dog training, and provide us with some knowledge of attitudes towards dog training in Singapore.
