Enrol Now
Course Summary:

This course builds upon the materials taught on our introductory level canine psychology course. It focuses on the canine brain, senses and behaviours, enabling you to gain deeper insights into canine psychology.

The course consists of four units, designed to expand your knowledge of canine psychology from a basic level, suitable for looking after one’s own dog, to a more advanced and professionally applicable level.

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.
