Everyone who works with dogs is fascinated by them needs to know the foundations of ethology.  This course is designed to make the understanding of the practice and how it relates to domestic dogs as accessible as possible. We learn about dogs, their domestication, how that domestication affects them and how we can help them with stress and anxiety by providing intelligent enrichment opportunities. Designed for dog professionals and enthusiasts, this is a CPD Standards Office Accredited course.
