I have a major problem with anxiety stress tension amongst my 4 cats and had almost exhausted all ideas. But this course has give me a few more ideas and extra info to try out for which I’m grateful. Presentation was good, easy to follow, interesting and kept my attention
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.
