Course Description

Pet behavioural problems are the main reasons for the abandonment and euthanasia of otherwise healthy animals at shelters internationally. Tragically, the majority of these problems could have been corrected or avoided.

The main goal of this distance learning Pet (Dog) Psychology course is to enable students to inform and advise pet owners on how to prevent or resolve behavioural problems in pets before their owners’ tolerance and love are lost.
