This online course has been designed to help personnel work more safely when handling and dealing with unfamiliar dogs.

This online seminar is a virtual presentation. The slides provide an outline of topics that are presented with voiceover – just as if you were sitting in a real-life lecture theatre. Because it is split in to easy-to-digest lessons you can dip in and out of this seminar and go back to remind yourself of some of the stages of training.

There are no exams, but to obtain your digital certificate of completion you must answer some multiple choice questions, which have been designed to ensure that you have learned the material and will help to reinforce the facts in your memory.

Verifiable CPD  This seminar is suitable for verifiable continuing professional development (CPD).

A good introduction to understanding canine communication and dealing with unfamiliar dogs. Easy to follow with regular knowledge checks and a range of presentation styles used to support the learning, thank you.

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.

Very informative and engaging, good use of different formats of information – e.g. on screen seminar, short video clips, still photography and diagrams.
