What exactly influences dog behaviour and why should we look much deeper to understand the actions of man’s best friend?

Thanks to modern science, we are finding out just how individual each dog is, we are learning that canine behaviour has many facets and this course explores them in detail.
The Holistic Canine Behaviour Diploma from Canine Principles is designed for dog professionals and enthusiasts. It’s a perfect partner to our Canine Coaching Diploma course and offers great insight into possible biological, chemical, emotional and environmental influences on the behaviour of every individual dog.

The objective of the course is to provide the foundations of an educated and aware approach to canine behaviour and well-being

    Amanda Blatch

    This is a fantastic course. I learnt so much from doing this course and will benefit in many ways – both from looking after my own dogs from a more holistic point of view but also through gaining valuable information and knowledge in order to advise my clients. As with all Canine Principles courses, this one was well laid out, factual, informative and the support/feedback was second to none!
