Advanced Diploma in Dog Behaviour and Training – Level 3

Would you like to learn what it takes to make your dog disciplined and well trained? Then this course in Advanced Diploma in Dog Behaviour and Training – Level 3 might just be the ideal course for you. Whether you need this certification to get into the veterinary or animal care industry or to simply understand your pet dog behaviour, this course has got you all covered, given you have a recognised qualification at level 2 or above in a related disciple. This course will not only educate you on dog behaviour, but will also guide you on how to treat your dog based on his/her behaviours.

This course will first delve into the various behavioural issues with dogs such as incessant barking, violent digging and different acting out episodes, followed by an insight into dog psychology and what might trigger such behaviours. Dogs are men’s greatest friends, which is why it is normal for dogs to experience separation anxiety while away from the owners. Therefore, this course has also dedicated a module on separation anxiety and on how to tackle them effectively.

This course will then provide solutions and methods to correct these behaviours in dogs. You will walk through the various principles of reward-based training to understand the role of rewards in correcting your dog’s behaviours. This course will also demonstrate you on how to praise, play and relax with your dog, all the while prepping you extensively to gain control in tricky situations. By the time you are done with this course, you will have a well-grounded knowledge on dog behaviour to have a long-lasting relationship with your dog or to make progress within a related industry.
