What Causes Dogs To Behave The Way They Do?

Dog behaviour can be seen in action every day. From choosing to stop and investigate a new place, greeting a stranger with play or trying to bury a food bowl under a rug, dog behaviour is guided by internal and external stimulus from a wide range of sources. In this course, you will learn; how the inner and outer environment of dogs contribute towards behaviour, how to manage destructive, dangerous or undesirable behaviours and the process of working with clients (canine and human!)
