About the course

Learn practical training skills, how to correct bad behaviors, and advanced training techniques for making you and your dog happy

Get inside your dog’s mind to reap the results of reward-based dog training. Through an understanding of dog psychology you move onto motivating your best buddy using rewards and how to cope with bad behavior, as well as learning a lexicon of basic commands.

This course will be of great interest to animal lovers and professionals in the pet care industry who would like to better understand the behaviour of dogs, how to properly care for and train dogs, and to any learner who is interested in pet care as a future industry to work in.

This is also a great resource for those who would like to own dogs and want to provide the highest level of care for their pets.

Included in the course is how to crate train and how to clicker train. In addition you’ll understand the motivation behind problem behaviors such as barking and digging, and learn how to correct them. And finally, the ‘Advanced commands’ teaches you vital training cues that give you control in tricky situations.
