Online Course Content
This course was good in the sense that I was able to complete it in my own time along side working full time. I liked that there was an assessment at the end of each module as it made sure I was taking it in as I went. I found the structure and layout of the course easy to use and the content of the course was interesting and transferable to a clinical setting.
I enjoyed the course and would recommend doing it.
Fantastic course; I was able to do it in small bites to fit in with my commitments as a home dog-boarder. The content is written in understandable language; and I have learned a LOT about how the dog’s internal workings – hormone levels for example – can have a real effect on their feelings and hence their behaviour; and so much more!
Look, take the course for yourself, and you’ll see!
I can’t wait to get started on my next course under Caroline’s excellent tutelage.
I have really enjoyed completing this course. I have learnt so much and have been able to use my knowledge whilst working as a veterinary nurse in practice. It’s very easy as veterinary professionals to see a dog as being “aggressive” however this is not the case. It’s given me understanding of fear and stress and how I can help reduce this and also give advice to clients. The course is brilliant in explaining things and given up to date scientific research and articles that link to all subjects and the seminars are really informative. It’s made me want to learn so much more!
A great in-depth course with informative and engaging content. Very well laid out and easy to follow with a mixture of content such as text, online seminars, photos, charts and illustrations.
The course was a good length and ideal as can pick it straight back up where last finished.
I would highly recommend this course.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this course and the additional contents referred to within it. It has been a good length and amount of detail for myself as a professional but also for owners and others who want to get a deeper insight to canine fear, anxiety and aggression. I just want to keep on learning but so pleased I have now completed this one. The mini assessments at the end of each module are an excellent idea, really well structured.
