Advanced Canine Psychology (Level 4)

Course Summary:

This advanced course will enable you to work with problem dogs and their owners at a professional level.

You’ll learn how to diagnose the cause of psychological problems, and to formulate a programme for their resolution, in a theoretical and practical capacity.

The course consists of five units, covering areas such as training, behaviour and diet.

You’ll receive your first unit as soon as you enrol, so you can start whenever you want, and progress through the course at your own pace, studying when and where you choose.

Our Support Promise:

You can phone or email your tutor at any point during your course – to ask questions, for advice, encouragement or to draw on their wealth of
knowledge.

You can also contact the support team who are here to help you Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
