Enjoyed completing this course lots of good practical information. Easy to read and understand. Lots of information that will be able to be applied to work in shelters, where the population of cats tends to be anxious or stressed and staff often see aggression. Highly recommend this course.

The aspects I liked the most were the on demand system, the accessibility and of course the high quality of the content. It is already helping me in my career as a feline behavior consultant and also as a cat owner.

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. As a veterinary nurse, I have learnt valuable transferable skills to advance my knowledge of feline behaviour and I now have the additional information needed to help clients with behavioural challenges at home and also, to be able to help my team at work, to provide a more positive experience in the clinic. It’s nice to be able to go at your own learning pace and I loved the handy downloadable sheets available on some of the modules. Would highly recommend! Will likely complete more courses through this site!

Caroline suggested this course because my cat wasn’t eating properly and initially the vets had no idea what was wrong. So glad she suggested it. Have learned loads regarding a cats behaviour and what things can affect it. I knew quite a few bits and the course reiterated them and reminded me of areas I had forgotten about.
I was reminded that a cat likes to be in control and to give my cat space when she wants it. To recognise signs that she wants time on her own and to back off, to have company, or to play.
I need to be aware of how I feel when around her as my anxieties can impact on how she is in herself.
Love that there is lots of recommended reading and research in to areas I know nothing about.
Also the module on training is fantastic. Starting re getting her used to her cat carrier and also her spot on flea treatment. She already comes when whistled, but will ignore me at times, so want to improve on that with clicker/marker training.

There are very few courses which cater for vet professionals interested in feline behaviour. This course is definitely one of the best. So much information and learning. Ideal for cat advocates!

as a feline behaviorist is wanted to know more about feline anxiety, fear and aggression to help my clients and their cats better. By following this course I became more known with these behavioral problems

This course (Advanced Certificate in Feline Fear, Anxiety, & Aggression) went above and beyond what I was expecting. The material/information, the instructional videos, the outside readings, and the suggested tasks were excellent. The material was explained in a manner that everyone could understand, even the physiological information as she included figures. There were pictures of what were being described so there were visuals as well as text. The course was very organized with 7 modules, each focusing on a specific topic (such as Dealing with Challenging Feline Behavior Problems) and 7-11 topics within each module.
I am also most appreciative to Caroline for being accommodating to the speed in which I took each module. I never felt rushed when completing the modules within this course.
I highly recommend this course if you are interested in cats as either a cat owner and/or a professional working with cats.

Really good course. It’s not often i find a course dedicated to our feline friends, this course was thoroughly enjoyable. I am a cat groomer with a huge belief that learning about cat behaviour is a must have to work with animals successfully. This course is hugely beneficial for the cat owner as well the pet professional. Highly recommended.

This course is in-depth and included really interesting and useful information that allowed me to better understand cats and their behaviour. The resources and references for additional study were fantastic, as they enabled me to easily continue with my studies. I now feel more able to understand feline behaviour problems and how these may be prevented, managed and treated. Thank you!
