Canine Behaviour Counselling (Theory) (Level 3)
Enrol Now
Course Summary:

This course focuses in-depth on the psychological processes that might cause a dog’s behaviour to become problematic. Alongside the causes for these changes in behaviour, students will be taught a series of remedial techniques, and how they might go about giving the appropriate advice to owners experiencing problems with the behaviour of their dogs.

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.
