Online Course Content
Great refresher or introduction for anyone in the veterinary field. Anyone could complete this from receptionists, kennel assistants, VNs and VS s. Helps to educate on signals displayed by dogs and will help a practice run more fear free by adapting to using some of the key tips and tricks learnt in this course. Am recommending to my head nurse and practice manager that all staff should complete as a basic introduction and for better welfare to our canines coming into practice
This is an excellent course for anybody who works with or walks/cares for dogs. Lots of very good information to deal with any situations that may arise by observing a dogs body language.
Myself and several colleagues took this training and it was extremely useful. The initial plan was to undertake the training in person, but the coronavirus pandemic made this impossible. However, this was not to the detriment of the training package, which was undertaken digitally and provided lots of brilliant material that will aid us as officers often working with dogs. The online seminars were engaging and interesting, and Caroline provided us with further assistance by spending an hour’s live Q&A session afterwards to provide further tips and advice. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to find out more about canine communication and behaviour, and how to act around dogs, particularly in a professional environment.
Very informative and easy to follow. Would recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve their understanding of dogs behaviour. Ideal training tool for work but also gave me an excellent insight into my own dogs behaviour. Now I need to practise the techniques shown.
