Human Canine Interactions

The aim of the course is 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 introduces learners to a more holistic and global perspective of human/dog interaction and encourages critical analysis of theory and personal experience.

Animal Abuse & Inter-Human Violence

This course is a fascinating journey that explores the relationships between animal cruelty and inter-human violence. It brings together information about the causes and the impact of animal cruelty and human violence, from both human and canine perspectives.
