November 10, 2021
Medicine Hat College has announced that it is launching a Service Dog and Canine Studies Management diploma. Students in the two-year program will be prepared for careers in areas such as training service dogs to support people living with health issues and owning and operating kennels, dog grooming businesses, or training operations. The program includes work-integrated learning where students will work directly with dogs. “We are partnering with other organizations in the sector to ensure that our students gain the work experience and knowledge required to be successful upon graduation,” said MHC VP, academic and Provost Dr Vicky Roy. “A lot of passion and work went into developing this diploma.” MHC says that it is the first postsecondary institution in Canada to offer such a course.
