Do you own a dog that has separation anxiety?

Are you worried that your dog will develop separation problems after lockdown?

Are you a dog trainer/ behaviourist, dog carer or veterinary nurse wishing to know more about separation anxiety so you can help provide up to date accurate advice?

This short, veterinary approved, online seminar, is presented and designed by a clinical animal behaviourist. It is suitable for either the pet professional or for an owner whose dog already has a degree of separation anxiety. Free training guides are also included.

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.

Thank you for helping raise funds for our chosen charity.

50% of the fee that you pay for this course will be donated by PET Courses to Medical Detection Dogs.

Medical Detection Dogs relies heavily on charitable donations, and desperately needs to raise over £1,900,000 every year to train more dogs to help prevent medical emergencies, save human lives and improve quality of life.

In fact, the charity have already started training dogs to detect COVID-19,  something we have all been affected by in one way or another!  This training could therefore be an important part of the efforts to overcome this devastating epidemic.

Planned on doing just 1 or 2 modules (after a long 24hr shift at work!), but it was so interesting kept me awake and I ended up completing the whole course! Looking forward to getting started on the other 2 courses I have waiting for me!

I now have a better understanding of pet anxiety and how to help the dogs that I care for. The training program was a particular highlight. This is now my 3rd course on here and I can’t wait to do more training soon. Thanks.

I’ve learnt so much from this course and come away with possible treatments and a training programme. Can’t wait to put some of what I’ve learnt into practice. Thank you.

Clear information that is easy to learn. The extra downloads were appreciated and will use these in the very near future. As usual with this website I was able to learn in my own time, whenever I chose to. Can’t wait to further my knowledge with more courses 🙂
