n this course you will learn all about the importance of understanding your dog’s behaviour and body language in order to meet their needs when training. This makes training more enjoyable and beneficial for both the dog and the owner.
Our dogs are speaking to us all the time, through actions, body language, verbal and non-verbal communication, and if we can understand what they are telling us then this will strengthen the bond that we have with them. We will look into the history of domestication of the dog and also the importance of those early years as a puppy, for the dogs future development.
The course will also look into different training methods and identify the strengths and limitations of each, which will enable us to choose appropriately to suit the needs and personality of our dog.
Full admin support is available whilst you learn.
