SUNY Cobleskill Will Offer Bachelor’s In Dog Training
Looking for a degree to train dogs? Well you are in luck.
The State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill says it will be the first college in the nation to offer a bachelor's degree in dog training and handling. That's right, the first.
The Wall Street Journal reports students must complete 120 credits in classes like "Canine Aggression" and "Therapy Dog Teams," in addition to fulfilling liberal arts requirements.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates there were more than 200,000 nonfarm animal-care and service workers nationally in 2017, and roughly 14,300 are animal trainers. New York state predicts the field of animal care and training will continue to grow through the next decade."
Just a reminder, SUNY Cobleskill is located roughly 40 miles west of Albany.
