Course Content

60 ACE Credits

Would you like to add more layers to your existing skills as a canine caregiver?

All behaviour, including movement, has a function.

There is so much information contained in the glorious bodies of the only dog experts that exist. With increased awareness of all the clues we might inadvertently overlook, we can ensure all interactions are truly rewarding for the dog and learn how human-led activities or management may be inadvertently triggering the canine behaviours we wish to modify or change. 

This course will give you new insights into the link between posture and behaviour, and help you gain confidence in developing your ACE Observation skills.

As all our courses include additional live teaching in Zoom and in a dedicated FB group, courses are not open for general enrolment.
