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.

miss louise, GB

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.

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.

I found this course very easy and completed it quickly, its perfect if you don't have a lot of time to sit down and take notes or study for tests because you can save each module to look back on when needed and also the end of module quiz is enough to test your memory. Really enjoyed this and I'm looking at doing some more courses with Pet Addict!

My experience with the course has been amazing and a eye opener. I have grown up with animals, especially dogs my whole life. My mother was a dog trainer, and even knowing what has been instilled in me, i have still learnt so much. This has been a value, knowledgeable to me and will be a positive form my family and my companions (3 crazy doggies). Thank you very much Siobhan Curry
