Online Course Content
The course was a full, rounded out explanation of the many significant important elements of this subject. Although containing detail and new concepts, it was presented to be comprehendible.
There are helpful and ample videos, photos, charts and illustrations.
The method and progression of the course, tasks, extra reading and assessments pushed me mentally to understand a module before moving on to the next one, so I learned a lot!
The course has equipped me with many new and effective tools to aid me in my dog home boarding business (species knowledge, behaviour observation and analysis, training and behaviour management techniques and treatments).
I definitely recommend this course, it was so practical and informative, excellent value for money and most helpful tutor support.
This course was my favourite so far (completed 5 others on this site), more in-depth information on each subject area was great and there are so many useful additional resources. Would highly recommend.
This was a fantastic course that introduced me to the field of canine behaviour. It was fully packed with information, presented very well and I learned so much! I hope to use some of the techniques on my own dogs. It will also be a great resource to go back to if needed.
Another enjoyable course, the knowledge gained from this course will enable me to help my clients and their dogs when they ask me for advice in the surgery. Easy to follow, well presented and filled with information, can not recommend this course enough to anyone wishing to learn more about canines and their behaviour!
Can not wait for another behaviour course to become available.
This course has helped me develop a better understanding of canine behaviour and I feel more confident about my knowledge of learning theory. I have also been able to use what I have learned with my own resource-guarding dog. There are also lots of useful resources that I can refer back to in the future.
Understanding & Dealing with Canine Fear & Anxiety has been one of the best courses I have taken and completed.
