Canine Behaviour Training Diploma Course
People love dogs. You do, or you would not be reading this. Do you 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?
Everyone that lives or works with dogs should have a good grounding in canine communication and behaviour. It is really important to know how to recognise whether a dog is scared, sad, over excited or anxious even if you are only living with one dog. More so if you look after other people’s pets in any setting.
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.
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.
You will also learn the best dog training methods and how to diagnose classic basic behavioural problems and put in place steps for behaviour modification plus have a good understanding of aggression in dogs.
The behaviour information enclosed is backed up by scientific knowledge and the findings of many canine experts. Take a good look at this course it will change your life, and your relationship with any dog you come into contact with.
