Human Canine Interactions

This Level 6 course has been created to provide learners with an academically challenging learning experience that enhances their work in the role of canine behaviourist or dog trainer. It is designed to build upon an existing knowledge of canine behaviour and human interactions but provide a much greater depth of understanding, that goes way beyond the subject matter. The course will introduce you to a more holistic and global perspective of human/dog interaction and encourages critical analysis of theory and personal experience. It should be noted that participants may need to be able to present case studies as part of the course and have a basic understanding of research methods. Potential students will have to demonstrate their ability to study at this level (level 6: Bachelor Degree) before being accepted. A long standing, knowledge or experience of dogs alone, will not be accepted as adequate criteria to register on this programme without prior study, although each case will be judged on its own merit.
