1. Canine Business: Explicitly Created For Those Who Work In Canine Care

Whether this is in canine behaviour, canine holistic therapy, canine nutrition, dog grooming, dog training, dog walking, running a kennel/pet sitting, dog day care, puppy training or something else dog-related, this course will guide you through not only maintaining, but growing, your exciting new business.

Working with dogs your main motivation is the care of the animals that you are charged with and of the owners who bring them to you. It is understandable that the focus may not be so much on the business side of things. It is essential, however, to get this right, as this will enable you to give professional, high-quality care on a larger scale and help others to work in the industry that you enjoy (or hope to enjoy if you are just starting out).

Explicitly created for those who work in canine care, the Canine Business Certificate Course is written in a simple way that won’t baffle or confuse and will aid your understanding of areas such as multi-skilling, marketing, growing an online presence, writing, and a great deal more.

You will learn more about your own business by outlining where the business is now, while utilising professional business planning to set up goals for where you want the business to be and the way in which you will achieve this. A template of a fully comprehensive business plan is included for you to use and from which you can start creating your own targets.

2. Canine Nutrition: Gain A Comprehensive Knowledge Base About Canine Health 

If you are looking to gain a comprehensive knowledge base about canine health and well-being then this is the course for you. Written by our Canine Nutrition expert who has over 10 years experience in this fascinating field this course will give you a brand new respect for the canine body along with how it is fuelled for life.

If you love dogs you will have a wonderful time with this course. We look forward to sharing a whole new range of information with you.

Whether you are looking for a complete career change, are just leaving education or simply want to add another skill set to your existing ones, this course will give you everything that you need to succeed.

3. Canine Holistic Health and Therapy: Assess Each Dog That You Care For & Encounter 

The knowledge gained within this course will help to raise your awareness of the different types of therapy available to dogs.

The course will enable you to make a thorough assessment of each dog that you care for and encounter then, alongside any veterinary care, work out more natural options to enhance the life of the animal.

Holistic therapy for dogs is a course packed full of knowledge for dog owners and canine professionals alike.

Despite the interest in natural health for humans gaining great power the holistic health of our dogs is lagging behind. We are in the middle of a canine ill health epidemic and dog owners often consider the health of their pet exclusively a job for the veterinarian. In reality, providing our dogs with a visit to the vet when required and offering a regular bowl of commercial dog food is not enough.

This course will explore all of the other, often less-invasive and kinder, dog health options available. We teach the fundamentals of canine holistic health whilst introducing all of the lesser explored natural approaches for dogs, to keep them healthy and happy well into old age.

4. Canine Behaviour Training: Everything That You Need To Know About Canine 

This course is a complete overview of the modern dog. It covers everything from how the dog evolved and became part of the human existence right through to how his brain works. By studying this you will be learning the most up to date and proven methods of dog communication, training and how to live a relaxed life with your own dogs.

People love dogs.  Do we understand dogs though? Can you tell if a dog in the room with you is worried? Do you know what a calming signal is or how long adrenaline takes to leave the body of a dog? Do you know why dogs bite or that although they share most of their DNA with the wolf their behaviour is very different?

You will have a greater understanding of dog training and behaviour modification methods and know how they came about as common practice, plus how they affect the dog. You will be able to recognise key body language, gestures and signals of the dog and learn how you own human body language and reactions often misrepresent your own canine communication attempts.

5. Canine Communication: Put Yourself In Their Shoes/Paws.

To understand how dogs communicate, you need first to put yourself in their shoes/paws.

The course does this through up-to-date studies and scientific findings, which inform us of exactly what dogs are saying to us through a variety of signals, facial expressions, body movements and vocal communications, and teaches us how we can alter our own behaviour to act and react to this input in ways that are meaningful to the dog.

Canine Communication Certificate Course dives straight into the core of the subject: communication, and how we can improve our ability to communicate cross-species. Differences in breed can also affect the way in which we communicate with dogs.

As with non-verbal human communication, you can tell a lot about what a dog wants or is feeling through their facial expressions, though these can be misinterpreted we will look in detail at what these expressions mean. We will also look at ‘calming signals’ which dogs display when stressed or anxious.

Again, just as in human relationships, body language is an important tool for non-verbal communication between man and dog and, just as in human relationships, these can often be misunderstood. Students will learn how to read and understand canine body language and how to respond with our own body language, for effective communication.

6. Dog Training: Understand And Train Dogs Better

The comprehensive and insightful Dog Training Course will provide you with a good academic base in the way that dogs think, learn and act. Based only on the most up-to-date research, kindest methods, and training advice that has been scientifically proven time and time again, the course will provide you with a good grounding for training your own dog or offering dog training advice to others.

This is an eight-unit course, packed full of essential information that talks of dog training and behaviour in a holistic style. We teach you how to communicate with, work with, and understand dogs and what exactly they are trying to say, at all times.

The most problematic behaviours that dogs display are usually based on a lack of understanding. Each unit is packed full of current research and advice on dog training and behaviour and how you can best communicate with and train your dog.

7. Dog Grooming: Learn To Be A Professional Dog Groomer 

Written by our expert dog groomer with over 15 years of personal experience in this exciting field, this course will prepare you completely for life as a professional dog groomer.

Designed for all dog lovers, there is nothing like learning a new skill, particularly if you can turn it into a full-time lucrative career. Learning is even more rewarding if you can use it to merge a passion with an income. Whether you are looking for a complete career change, are just leaving education or simply want to add another skill to your existing ones, then this course will give you everything you need to succeed.

This comprehensive and exciting course will take you from being a complete beginner in the dog grooming industry, guiding you through all of the safety precautions and grooming techniques to how you go about setting up your brand new venture and attracting clients.

8. Understanding Canine Anxiety: Learn the emotional, physiological, genetic and behavioural components of canine anxiety 

Learn the emotional, physiological, genetic and behavioural components of canine anxiety and how to apply this knowledge in recognising and treating canine anxiety.

For years, scientists debated whether animals experience emotions at all. Now it is widely accepted amongst ethologists that emotions are a biological phenomenon that animals experience and that they play a vital role in survival. You will learn the biology behind animal emotions, what emotions are attributed to animals, and what factors influence emotions.

Fear and anxiety are key emotions that promote survival in animals. We’ll gain a deeper understanding of anxiety as an animal emotion as well as an understanding of when anxiety is adaptive and when it is pathological.

The feelings and expression of anxiety are strongly routed in physiological processes within the body. The course explores the physiological stress systems within mammalian bodies, specifically as they relate to fear and anxiety.

The nervous and endocrine systems play a vital role in stress systems. You’ll gain deep insight into the physiological mechanisms behind animal emotions, specifically general anxiety and anxiety disorders.

Genetic predisposition and environmental factors contribute to fear and anxiety-related disorders. We’ll review the heritability of fear and anxiety in mammals, along with the epigenetic mechanisms that can alter gene expression.

‘Coping style’ refers to individual differences in stress response and is an aspect of individual animal personalities. You’ll learn how to measure personality, how coping styles are connected to genes and physiology, and how personality affects anxiety.

Fear and anxiety responses begin with the perception of a stimulus as a threat. You’ll learn about the components of dog perception and how they can contribute to anxiety.

9. Pet Care Business: Set Up Your Own Exciting New Pet Care Venture

With less people wanting to use boarding kennels for their beloved pets a new business opportunity has opened up for genuine pet lovers.

This comprehensive and insightful course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to set up your own exciting new pet care venture. People want to be certain that their pets are looked after properly when they are not around to take care of them and also that the carer knows exactly what to do in every possible situation. This step by step course will take you from a complete beginner in this arena to feeling confident in your abilities to get started in this exciting niche.

The pet care business is a thriving industry and with the right knowledge and dedication, any genuine and knowledgeable animal lover can build a successful business in it.

10. Crystal Healing for Animals: Heal Animals With The Power Of Crystals

Discover the energy systems of the animal body and heal ill health with the power of crystals. With the Crystal Healing for Animals Course, you’ll learn about the tools, techniques, theories and philosophies used in the practice. Everything from understanding animal behaviour to selecting and energising crystals and giving hands-on and distant treatment is covered.

The Crystal Healing for Animals Course requires no prerequisite knowledge. It begins by explaining what crystals are and how to go about choosing, cleansing (or purifying), energising and caring for them.

For crystal healing to be most effective it is important to choose the correct crystals for each ailment. This course provides a directory of stones and their prescribed uses – giving you a quick and easy reference guide. You are also provided with a short list of crystals you should obtain to create a basic set to start out with.

To understand how crystal healing works, you first need to understand the energy centres that all living things have and how chakras, meridians, and auras work. The Crystal Healing for Animals Course guides you through these, explaining how to identify imbalances in energy and which crystals should be used to help to resolve them.

There are various tools and techniques used in the crystal healing process. This course outlines how to choose, cleanse, programme and use crystal pendulums and wands, and explains the use of both. You’ll also learn what a crystal grid is and how to set one up and how to make and administer crystal elixirs and use ‘hands on’ healing with animals.

1. Canine Business: Explicitly Created For Those Who Work In Canine Care

Whether this is in canine behaviour, canine holistic therapy, canine nutrition, dog grooming, dog training, dog walking, running a kennel/pet sitting, dog day care, puppy training or something else dog-related, this course will guide you through not only maintaining, but growing, your exciting new business.

Working with dogs your main motivation is the care of the animals that you are charged with and of the owners who bring them to you. It is understandable that the focus may not be so much on the business side of things. It is essential, however, to get this right, as this will enable you to give professional, high-quality care on a larger scale and help others to work in the industry that you enjoy (or hope to enjoy if you are just starting out).

Explicitly created for those who work in canine care, the Canine Business Certificate Course is written in a simple way that won’t baffle or confuse and will aid your understanding of areas such as multi-skilling, marketing, growing an online presence, writing, and a great deal more.

You will learn more about your own business by outlining where the business is now, while utilising professional business planning to set up goals for where you want the business to be and the way in which you will achieve this. A template of a fully comprehensive business plan is included for you to use and from which you can start creating your own targets.

2. Canine Nutrition: Gain A Comprehensive Knowledge Base About Canine Health 

If you are looking to gain a comprehensive knowledge base about canine health and well-being then this is the course for you. Written by our Canine Nutrition expert who has over 10 years experience in this fascinating field this course will give you a brand new respect for the canine body along with how it is fuelled for life.

If you love dogs you will have a wonderful time with this course. We look forward to sharing a whole new range of information with you.

Whether you are looking for a complete career change, are just leaving education or simply want to add another skill set to your existing ones, this course will give you everything that you need to succeed.

3. Canine Holistic Health and Therapy: Assess Each Dog That You Care For & Encounter 

The knowledge gained within this course will help to raise your awareness of the different types of therapy available to dogs.

The course will enable you to make a thorough assessment of each dog that you care for and encounter then, alongside any veterinary care, work out more natural options to enhance the life of the animal.

Holistic therapy for dogs is a course packed full of knowledge for dog owners and canine professionals alike.

Despite the interest in natural health for humans gaining great power the holistic health of our dogs is lagging behind. We are in the middle of a canine ill health epidemic and dog owners often consider the health of their pet exclusively a job for the veterinarian. In reality, providing our dogs with a visit to the vet when required and offering a regular bowl of commercial dog food is not enough.

This course will explore all of the other, often less-invasive and kinder, dog health options available. We teach the fundamentals of canine holistic health whilst introducing all of the lesser explored natural approaches for dogs, to keep them healthy and happy well into old age.

4. Canine Behaviour Training: Everything That You Need To Know About Canine 

This course is a complete overview of the modern dog. It covers everything from how the dog evolved and became part of the human existence right through to how his brain works. By studying this you will be learning the most up to date and proven methods of dog communication, training and how to live a relaxed life with your own dogs.

People love dogs.  Do we understand dogs though? Can you tell if a dog in the room with you is worried? Do you know what a calming signal is or how long adrenaline takes to leave the body of a dog? Do you know why dogs bite or that although they share most of their DNA with the wolf their behaviour is very different?

You will have a greater understanding of dog training and behaviour modification methods and know how they came about as common practice, plus how they affect the dog. You will be able to recognise key body language, gestures and signals of the dog and learn how you own human body language and reactions often misrepresent your own canine communication attempts.

5. Canine Communication: Put Yourself In Their Shoes/Paws.

To understand how dogs communicate, you need first to put yourself in their shoes/paws.

The course does this through up-to-date studies and scientific findings, which inform us of exactly what dogs are saying to us through a variety of signals, facial expressions, body movements and vocal communications, and teaches us how we can alter our own behaviour to act and react to this input in ways that are meaningful to the dog.

Canine Communication Certificate Course dives straight into the core of the subject: communication, and how we can improve our ability to communicate cross-species. Differences in breed can also affect the way in which we communicate with dogs.

As with non-verbal human communication, you can tell a lot about what a dog wants or is feeling through their facial expressions, though these can be misinterpreted we will look in detail at what these expressions mean. We will also look at ‘calming signals’ which dogs display when stressed or anxious.

Again, just as in human relationships, body language is an important tool for non-verbal communication between man and dog and, just as in human relationships, these can often be misunderstood. Students will learn how to read and understand canine body language and how to respond with our own body language, for effective communication.

6. Dog Training: Understand And Train Dogs Better

The comprehensive and insightful Dog Training Course will provide you with a good academic base in the way that dogs think, learn and act. Based only on the most up-to-date research, kindest methods, and training advice that has been scientifically proven time and time again, the course will provide you with a good grounding for training your own dog or offering dog training advice to others.

This is an eight-unit course, packed full of essential information that talks of dog training and behaviour in a holistic style. We teach you how to communicate with, work with, and understand dogs and what exactly they are trying to say, at all times.

The most problematic behaviours that dogs display are usually based on a lack of understanding. Each unit is packed full of current research and advice on dog training and behaviour and how you can best communicate with and train your dog.

7. Dog Grooming: Learn To Be A Professional Dog Groomer 

Written by our expert dog groomer with over 15 years of personal experience in this exciting field, this course will prepare you completely for life as a professional dog groomer.

Designed for all dog lovers, there is nothing like learning a new skill, particularly if you can turn it into a full-time lucrative career. Learning is even more rewarding if you can use it to merge a passion with an income. Whether you are looking for a complete career change, are just leaving education or simply want to add another skill to your existing ones, then this course will give you everything you need to succeed.

This comprehensive and exciting course will take you from being a complete beginner in the dog grooming industry, guiding you through all of the safety precautions and grooming techniques to how you go about setting up your brand new venture and attracting clients.

8. Understanding Canine Anxiety: Learn the emotional, physiological, genetic and behavioural components of canine anxiety 

Learn the emotional, physiological, genetic and behavioural components of canine anxiety and how to apply this knowledge in recognising and treating canine anxiety.

For years, scientists debated whether animals experience emotions at all. Now it is widely accepted amongst ethologists that emotions are a biological phenomenon that animals experience and that they play a vital role in survival. You will learn the biology behind animal emotions, what emotions are attributed to animals, and what factors influence emotions.

Fear and anxiety are key emotions that promote survival in animals. We’ll gain a deeper understanding of anxiety as an animal emotion as well as an understanding of when anxiety is adaptive and when it is pathological.

The feelings and expression of anxiety are strongly routed in physiological processes within the body. The course explores the physiological stress systems within mammalian bodies, specifically as they relate to fear and anxiety.

The nervous and endocrine systems play a vital role in stress systems. You’ll gain deep insight into the physiological mechanisms behind animal emotions, specifically general anxiety and anxiety disorders.

Genetic predisposition and environmental factors contribute to fear and anxiety-related disorders. We’ll review the heritability of fear and anxiety in mammals, along with the epigenetic mechanisms that can alter gene expression.

‘Coping style’ refers to individual differences in stress response and is an aspect of individual animal personalities. You’ll learn how to measure personality, how coping styles are connected to genes and physiology, and how personality affects anxiety.

Fear and anxiety responses begin with the perception of a stimulus as a threat. You’ll learn about the components of dog perception and how they can contribute to anxiety.

9. Pet Care Business: Set Up Your Own Exciting New Pet Care Venture

With less people wanting to use boarding kennels for their beloved pets a new business opportunity has opened up for genuine pet lovers.

This comprehensive and insightful course will teach you everything that you need to know in order to set up your own exciting new pet care venture. People want to be certain that their pets are looked after properly when they are not around to take care of them and also that the carer knows exactly what to do in every possible situation. This step by step course will take you from a complete beginner in this arena to feeling confident in your abilities to get started in this exciting niche.

The pet care business is a thriving industry and with the right knowledge and dedication, any genuine and knowledgeable animal lover can build a successful business in it.

10. Crystal Healing for Animals: Heal Animals With The Power Of Crystals

Discover the energy systems of the animal body and heal ill health with the power of crystals. With the Crystal Healing for Animals Course, you’ll learn about the tools, techniques, theories and philosophies used in the practice. Everything from understanding animal behaviour to selecting and energising crystals and giving hands-on and distant treatment is covered.

The Crystal Healing for Animals Course requires no prerequisite knowledge. It begins by explaining what crystals are and how to go about choosing, cleansing (or purifying), energising and caring for them.

For crystal healing to be most effective it is important to choose the correct crystals for each ailment. This course provides a directory of stones and their prescribed uses – giving you a quick and easy reference guide. You are also provided with a short list of crystals you should obtain to create a basic set to start out with.

To understand how crystal healing works, you first need to understand the energy centres that all living things have and how chakras, meridians, and auras work. The Crystal Healing for Animals Course guides you through these, explaining how to identify imbalances in energy and which crystals should be used to help to resolve them.

There are various tools and techniques used in the crystal healing process. This course outlines how to choose, cleanse, programme and use crystal pendulums and wands, and explains the use of both. You’ll also learn what a crystal grid is and how to set one up and how to make and administer crystal elixirs and use ‘hands on’ healing with animals.
