    • “I soon realised that my inexperience really didn’t matter, as what we had come to learn about was new to everyone. We all had a similar motivation for doing the course. To do the best...

    Target audience: pet owners, aspiring professionals or professionals who want to understand Canine Play Behaviour and what is really going on.

    We all know that dogs enjoy play and that the right type of play leaves them satisfied, mentally stimulated and content but we have all probably seen play that leaves a dog over tired, unable to settle, unable to know when to stop or unable make good choices.

    This course will enable you to look at canine play behaviour in a new light. Through video footage you will learn to truly understand what you are looking at taking into account body language and stress levels.

    You will learn when to intervene, the importance of timing this correctly and the methods of intervention.
