I can not describe how much this course, and Caroline especially, has helped me develop in my career as a veterinary nurse. I am already holding my own behaviour consults and creating behaviour modification plans! I would 100% recommend this course for anyone wanting to become a CAB in your future!

by Jane Owen 17/06/2024

This is the best course I have done. The level of content, with the user friendly delivery and support is second to none.
Extremely informative, but well explained course. With practical content, filled with useful advice supported with evidence. Caroline is a wonderful and inspiring teacher with a wealth of knowledge that she is generous to share. Caroline couldn’t have been more supportive or approachable throughout this course. I 100% recommend this course (or any of her other courses)

by Beverley Mossop 11/06/2024

A really informative and useful course that I have really enjoyed completing. Caroline is so knowledgeable and approachable that both the one to ones and group meetings have been fun and incredibly useful. The course covers so many areas and the topics are well supported with easily reached resources that allow you to research and understand areas further. Having lifetime access will be invaluable, both with the content and handout access, but also with the knowledge that there is ongoing support. Thank you Caroline

This has been one of the most interesting and useful CPD course I have done to date. Caroline is extremely knowledgeable. I feel I have gained useful knowledge in canine behaviour that I can now apply in practice.

by Georgia Woolf-Holloway 02/06/2024

Caroline was an amazing tutor and mentor during the course! The information was presented and taught so clearly and really helped further my career and confidence in my work. Having the group sessions with the rest of the cohort allowed us to share our own experiences and information, and it felt really collaborative. There was so much support from everyone, including Caroline and Tommy. I would 100% recommend this course!

by Laura Smith 29/05/2024

Loved working through the course, Caroline explains everything very well, and covers a lot of great information. The consultation shadowing videos were really helpful, and the group discussions were nice and relaxed, where we chatted about a lot of interesting topics.

by Lisa Schaefer 16/04/2024

Caroline is a huge animal lover and a fountain of knowledge. Her course allows you to study at your own pace while being part of a supportive community. As a vet with a keen interest in behavior, the program helped me organize and increase my knowledge in a way that will help me help my clients better in the future. Thank you so much for a wonderful time and all your continued support.

by Samantha Lympany-Tier 08/04/2024

I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Caroline and my peers, exploring the many facets of canine behaviour and welfare, and how as behaviour professionals we can help support the emotional wellbeing of both our patients and their guardians. The 121 mentoring and group discussion sessions really helped to hone in on the learning content, offering different avenues and viewpoints to explore that you may not have found as a solo professional.

The content covered a wide range of canine behaviours that may be presented, from the emotional motivation behind the behaviour, diagnosis, and behaviour modification and support actions. Being able to shadow a real case, and apply the theory learnt was really helpful to solidify the knowledge gained throughout the course.

I would recommend this course to anyone interested in pursuing a career in canine behaviour or training.

Thank you Caroline for running this programme, you have helped me more than I can say! I have completed a lot of training within my field and I can honestly say that having the opportunity to spend time with Caroline, learn from her experience and just have an honest and open chat has been the best money I have spent. I have gained so much value from the programme and I’m sad it’s finished! Highly recommend for anyone who is looking to increase their experience in canine behaviour, either already practicing or currently undertaking study. You will gain so much value from doing this programme.
