  1. Dog Behaviour Training

  2. Dog Training

  3. Dog Grooming

1. Dog Behaviour Training: Everything That You Need To Know About Canine

This course is a complete overview of the modern dog. It covers everything from how the dog evolved and became part of the human existence right through to how his brain works. By studying this you will be learning the most up to date and proven methods of dog communication, training and how to live a relaxed life with your own dogs.

People love dogs. Do we understand dogs though? Can you tell if a dog in the room with you is worried? Do you know what a calming signal is or how long adrenaline takes to leave the body of a dog? Do you know why dogs bite or that although they share most of their DNA with the wolf their behaviour is very different?

You will have a greater understanding of dog training and behaviour modification methods and know how they came about as common practice, plus how they affect the dog. You will be able to recognise key body language, gestures and signals of the dog and learn how you own human body language and reactions often misrepresent your own canine communication attempts.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is ideal for all dog lovers.

Written by a canine behaviour specialist with over 15 years experience in the field and backed up by scientific knowledge, the course can help to change your life and your relationship with any dog that you come into contact with.

This course is ideal for those that have a dog or those that work with dogs in any capacity and want to understand and improve their relationships with their furry companion.

2. Dog Training: Understand And Train Dogs Better

The comprehensive and insightful Dog Training Course will provide you with a good academic base in the way that dogs think, learn and act. Based only on the most up-to-date research, kindest methods, and training advice that has been scientifically proven time and time again, the course will provide you with a good grounding for training your own dog or offering dog training advice to others.

This is an eight-unit course, packed full of essential information that talks of dog training and behaviour in a holistic style. We teach you how to communicate with, work with, and understand dogs and what exactly they are trying to say, at all times.

The most problematic behaviours that dogs display are usually based on a lack of understanding. Each unit is packed full of current research and advice on dog training and behaviour and how you can best communicate with and train your dog.

Video Content
To give students visual demonstrations of the dog training techniques discussed, the course is accompanied by video tutorials presented by a Professional Dog Trainer, which you will gain access to upon enrolling on the course. The following topics are taught in the videos:

Whilst dog training is a self-regulated profession at the moment it’s important that you use this course as a base of knowledge then continue to study, all of the recommendations for further study will be described within the course and the information described within will certainly be a good start in a dog training career if that’s a route you wish to pursue.

This course will also work perfectly with our other related courses on canine nutrition, behaviour and holistic therapy.
