Online Course Content
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.
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.
