The Dog Behaviour Training Practitioner Diploma course consists of various modules that result in comprehensive dog behavioural practitioner skills:

 This module takes an in-depth look at the anatomy of the brain and how this can affect and shape behaviour.

Module 2 – Genetics and Evolution

In the second module, you will discover the role of genetics and part it can play in influencing how a dog thinks and reacts to stimuli. Evolution, as a factor in genetics, will also be studied. The dominance myth is another part of the module’s curriculum.

Module 3 – Emotional Influences

The module will focus on the elements that influence the way dogs behave. Aggression, stress, obsessions, frustration, fear, and anxiety will be the main topics. Unlike in other, lower-level courses, we will also put a strong emphasis on the way these conditions affect the dog owner, leading to changes in the relationship with the dog.

Food and diet can negatively impact canine behaviour. As a behavioural practitioner, you need to understand the role diet plays and the relationship between nutrition, exercise and behaviour. 

Module 5 – Canine Body Language and Signalling

The module will help you understand body language the way dogs express their emotional and physical state. In addition, human body language and its impact on canine behaviour is also a part of the curriculum.

Module 6 – Using Science

At this stage, we put a strong emphasis on the scientific discoveries related to a dog’s behavioural repertoire. We also take a look at the proven methods of training techniques. All methods are force free and relationship centred. Here, we will examine how owners and behaviourists can help solve canine emotional issues.
