This online seminar is a virtual presentation. The slides provide an outline of topics that I present with voiceover – just as if you were sitting in a real-life lecture theatre.

There are no exams, but to obtain your digital certificate of completion you must answer some multiple choice questions, which have been designed to ensure that you have learned the material and will help to reinforce the facts in your memory.

As an owner of a very anxious rescue dog I have found this course a very useful and informative introductory guide as to how to manage her and the situations that she finds difficult. Thank you.

This course taught me so much about Dog and Cat behaviour. Very clear and informative, well structured. Can’t wait to apply my knowledge in my own home!

Excellent introduction to this topic, especially if you volunteer at an animal shelter. The topics are clear, offer no nonsense information, and offer handy hints and tips narrated by the soothing Caroline Clark.. There are downloads that expand the topics and websites links to expand your knowledge further. Pleasant way to learn, most enjoyable.

I found this course covered, in easy-to-learn modules, a well defined introduction to cat and dog anxiety and stress. Caroline’s narration of the power points is excellent and has many examples which are very helpful. I plan on taking the next level of courses.
