The American Kennel Club believes that pet safety should be a top priority and is a genuine concern for pet owners. We recognize the importance of proper education for the health, well-being and overall safety of dogs in the care of pet professionals. As a result, the AKC has specifically designed its AKC S.A.F.E. Handling (Safety, Assurance, Fundamentals, Education) Program for pet professionals to support the pet industry’s self-regulation effort through education and awareness. Show your commitment to your clients and community by setting the standard in pet services safety. 

The course includes:

  • AKC S.A.F.E. Handling Certification
  • Best Practices Focusing on Pet Care, Health and Safety 
  • Acceptable Animal Handling Guidelines
  • Implement Basic Safe Canine Handling Skills 
  • Handling Difficult Dogs
  • Reducing Stress in the Pet through Handling Techniques
