PLEASE NOTE: THIS COURSE IS ONLY OPEN TO THOSE WHO HAVE ATTENDED THE FIRST 3 MODULE COURSE
Limited to 35 attendees
The course is aimed at people working professionally with dogs who regularly give advice to owners of potentially aggressive individuals, eg. dog trainers, behaviourists and vet nurses/vets.
The course is a class-room based course, offering up to date scientific knowledge combined with its practical application. This is achieved through the course by combining lectures with video illustrations and multiple group exercises and case studies to work through. All scientific references are given during the course, and each module has recommended reading books to assist with further learning and information consolidation.
