    Posted By Chantelle Smit, on 9th Nov, 2019

  • I very much enjoyed learning of Dr Dunbar's positive reinforcement methods for training puppies and older dogs. This course was extremely helpful given that I have recently taken on a dog and that I provide puppy classes at my place of work. There is a wealth of information and literature within this course that was excellent to have access to. I would recommend this very highly to anyone. Thank you

  • I have gained so much knowledge, through doing this course wished i had done It early When I first got my Puppy or before I brought him home. I really liked that you can work at your own pace do as much or as little as you would like in a day.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the puppy course and although I have reared many pups it gave some different points in a lot of aspects. It is good to see things through other peoples eyes as this broadens your ability to pass knowledge on to others. I have recommended the course to others.

    Posted By Gail Thompson, on 31st Mar, 2019

  • Fantastic course with great videos and booklets for support. Would recommend to anyone that wants to train their dog properly without instilling fear into the dog to get it to do what you want it to do. Very informative and a fantastic way to build bonds as training goes along through each stage of the dogs life.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed this course as the modules were very detailed and interesting no matter what level of dog psychology study you are at. I particularly enjoyed the modules which encompassed wolf behaviour. I would definitely recommend this Dog Psychology course as a starting point or as a refresher for those who are already educated in dog psychology as it covers all the important topics and looks at dog behaviour from a range of perspectives.

    Posted By Tiffany Ward, on 1st Sep, 2017

  • It's a great course I enjoyed it but there could be more information on analyzing the dogs body language for nervousness and aggression I did look up that information online because I felt like it needed more because in all actuality there is a lot to a dog's body language and many different ways to miss read it. But it was a very knowledgeable course I took loads of notes for my own use and it helps me keep the information fresh in mind. And I did the test so many times I can ace it with my eyes closed now! Thank u can't wait for my next course!!!!

    Posted By Lydia Pixton, on 3rd Aug, 2017

  • Course was OK! It is very useful to have video's to show the course rather than just written work and I loved that about this course, It was a good introduction if you have no knowledge at all.

    Posted By Emma Hall, on 24th Jun, 2017

  • was very informative. Only module pertaining to law was interesting but does not apply to RSA. But thank you as i have learnt a lot and can apply it to the animal welfare society where i volunteer at.

    Posted By Kathy Scholes, on 13th Jun, 2017

  • This course was very engrossing. Understanding dog behaviour is essential before any training programme is considered. A happy dog is a good dog. ! There are too many misconceptions regarding dog behaviour and this course really opens your eyes to truth and reality. Highly recommend this course.

    Posted By Jan Farthing, on 13th Jun, 2017

  • The course is well designed and easy to understand. The tests are more challenging than at first glance. You really have to know your work to be able to answer multiple choice questions. Overall, a good course to study.

    Posted By Uwais Rawoot, on 28th May, 2017

  • Great course very comprehensive on all of the topics and very helpful I would recommend it to anyone who wants to understand what goes on with your dogs mind and what may cause problems with your dogs.
