SDSF Dog Instructor

Who is the SDSF Dog Instructor

The SDSF Dog Instructor has the task of working on those problematic situations that no longer belong to the developmental area but require a proper behavioural intervention.
The behavioural problems of post-evolutionary subjects cannot be dealt with by SDSF Dog Trainers through developmental activities, but with a different kind of intervention put into practice by
SDSF Dog Instructors.

Even in behavioural problems it is essential to start from the relationship because, apart from a few specific situations, it is always in the relationship that those problematic situations that are all too often wrongly blamed on the dog come about..


The SDSF Dog Instructor also has a specialisation in sport among those promoted by the Federation.


The SDSF Dog Instructor has three levels of competence.

SDSF Dog Instructor Competences


During the training course, the SDSF Dog Instructor develops a specific theoretical framework analysing the principles of cognitive-zoo-anthropological psychotherapy, based on purely expressive-behavioural activities, allowing concrete tools to be available to work on difficult situations.

Laboratory activities, case presentations and internships in kennels are also planned to approach problem situations, thanks to the intervention of highly qualified and experienced lecturers.

SDSF Dog Instructor Job Opportunities

The SDSF dog instructor works on adult or post-evolutionary age subjects to foster their social or relational integration, to solve 'behavioural drifts' and to develop competitive skills focused on a sporting competition seen as a moment of growth and fun.
He/she works in close proximity with other professional figures and in situations that are often very critical, whether they stem from behavioural problems or in the agonistic context, so he/she must be very sensitive to deontological principles.

The SDSF dog instructor is a crucial player because of the uniqueness of the role and the correct application of the zoo-anthropological approach.

Adequate training, skill-building through experience and, above all, respect for deontological principles, represent the basis of the SDSF Dog Instructor's training.
