1. 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.

2. 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.

These comprehensive and exciting dog grooming courses 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. The same applies for all our animal care training courses.

3. 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.

4. Animal Assisted Therapy: Discover That Animals Make Great Therapists

The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate course discusses this further: giving information on the effectiveness of animals on human mental, physical and psychological health through Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT).

While the roles often merge ‘Animal Assistants’ and ‘Therapy Animals’ offer different functions to humans. The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate Course discusses these differences and also how they crossover, whilst explaining what specific animals can offer in terms of assistance.

Students will discover that animals make great therapists for a number of conditions and for a number of reasons. You will learn how they can aid mental health issues, and how these mental health conditions arise in the first instance.

As humans we have certain needs that must be met for us to be healthy, the absence of which can lead us away from happiness and health, and into mental ill health, which often leads to physical sickness. We discuss the scientific findings that link mental well-being to the presence of animals, detailing exactly animals can do for our health, both physical and mental.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. Pet Bereavement Counsellor: Help Your Clients Cope With The Grief Of Losing Their Pets

Grief is crippling, and this is the case regardless of who we have lost, whether it be a human or an animal who is suddenly no more within the family group. Without careful understanding, grief can become years of depression. The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course will help you to understand how to work with clients by understanding the process of grief and carrying out practical therapy processes. Pet bereavement counselling is currently under-represented but by studying this course you can help to fill the gap in the market.

The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course begins by exploring the bond that humans have forged with animals and how pets are most often considered as family. As such, when that bond is broken through loss, the impact can be just as strong as losing a human family member, especially in cases where a non-human companion is all the family that someone has.

You will explore the topic of grief in detail, including a breakdown of the 7 stages of grief. This will provide a thorough understanding of the process and how its effects are no different whether the loss is a human or an animal. You will also look at the symptoms of grief and the warning signs of when grief becomes depression. From this, you will be fully prepared to make initial contact with a grieving pet owner and understand all the types of emotional and physical reactions they may be having as a result of their loss.

10. Feline Behavior and Psychology: Learn More About Your Cat

The Feline Behavior and Psychology Course gives a greater understanding of what is going on in the mind of your cat(s), why they do certain things, and how to improve your, and your other pet's, relationship with them.

For cat lovers part of the attraction to their feline friends is the very thing that sets them apart from other pets; their intelligence and behaviors, though this can also be an avenue of confusion, leaving you with unanswered questions.

  • ‘Why is my cat constantly spraying my curtains, even though he’s been neutered?’
  • ‘Why does my cat chew my plants?’
  • ‘Why does my cat sometimes bite me when I stroke her?’

1. 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.

2. 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.

These comprehensive and exciting dog grooming courses 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. The same applies for all our animal care training courses.

3. 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.

4. Animal Assisted Therapy: Discover That Animals Make Great Therapists

The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate course discusses this further: giving information on the effectiveness of animals on human mental, physical and psychological health through Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT).

While the roles often merge ‘Animal Assistants’ and ‘Therapy Animals’ offer different functions to humans. The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate Course discusses these differences and also how they crossover, whilst explaining what specific animals can offer in terms of assistance.

Students will discover that animals make great therapists for a number of conditions and for a number of reasons. You will learn how they can aid mental health issues, and how these mental health conditions arise in the first instance.

As humans we have certain needs that must be met for us to be healthy, the absence of which can lead us away from happiness and health, and into mental ill health, which often leads to physical sickness. We discuss the scientific findings that link mental well-being to the presence of animals, detailing exactly animals can do for our health, both physical and mental.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. Pet Bereavement Counsellor: Help Your Clients Cope With The Grief Of Losing Their Pets

Grief is crippling, and this is the case regardless of who we have lost, whether it be a human or an animal who is suddenly no more within the family group. Without careful understanding, grief can become years of depression. The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course will help you to understand how to work with clients by understanding the process of grief and carrying out practical therapy processes. Pet bereavement counselling is currently under-represented but by studying this course you can help to fill the gap in the market.

The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course begins by exploring the bond that humans have forged with animals and how pets are most often considered as family. As such, when that bond is broken through loss, the impact can be just as strong as losing a human family member, especially in cases where a non-human companion is all the family that someone has.

You will explore the topic of grief in detail, including a breakdown of the 7 stages of grief. This will provide a thorough understanding of the process and how its effects are no different whether the loss is a human or an animal. You will also look at the symptoms of grief and the warning signs of when grief becomes depression. From this, you will be fully prepared to make initial contact with a grieving pet owner and understand all the types of emotional and physical reactions they may be having as a result of their loss.

10. Feline Behavior and Psychology: Learn More About Your Cat

The Feline Behavior and Psychology Course gives a greater understanding of what is going on in the mind of your cat(s), why they do certain things, and how to improve your, and your other pet's, relationship with them.

For cat lovers part of the attraction to their feline friends is the very thing that sets them apart from other pets; their intelligence and behaviors, though this can also be an avenue of confusion, leaving you with unanswered questions.

  • ‘Why is my cat constantly spraying my curtains, even though he’s been neutered?’
  • ‘Why does my cat chew my plants?’
  • ‘Why does my cat sometimes bite me when I stroke her?’
