Ever wondered why dogs behave the way they do? Want to know how to use positive training techniques to teach new skills and behaviours?
This course will help you take your understanding of dogs to the next level. Identify and learn about the behaviours that we see in dogs and understand the basis behind these. You’ll gain an understanding of training methods, and develop the skills to create and use positive training techniques to enhance your working relationship with dogs. Our programs are tailored for those wanting to enter the animal industry or already working within this field, as well as helping people to increase skills with their own pets.
This course can be completed as a standalone session, or as a follow up to our Caring for Dogs introduction course. Book both courses at the same time to receive a discount.
