For guidelines on how to receive accreditation as a dog trainer, you can refer to:

You may e-mail your application form together with a link(s) of your dog training video to, or submit it to us at 52 Jurong Gateway Road, #09-01, Singapore 608550.

Your video should contain the following segments (at least one minute per segment):
  • Dog's initial behavioural problems.
  • Process of training to improve the dog’s behaviour.
  • Results seen from the training of both the dog and its owner.
You may refer to the accreditation syllabus and demonstration video for accreditation syllabus as guidelines for your basic dog obedience training course.
Accreditation ensures that dog trainers meet minimum competency standards in dog training. This includes ensuring a dog is properly controlled by its handler, and is less prone to aggression or biting.
Accreditation is not compulsory for dog breeds not listed under types of dogs that have to undergo basic obedience training by an AVS-accredited dog trainer. Non-accredited dog trainers can continue to offer their services to the public.
