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.

Who would benefit from this course?

Ideal for all pet lovers and those looking to combine their love of animals with an exciting new career!

The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate Course can be studied as a general interest course, as the information within opens students up to the versatility and therapeutic power that the inclusion of animals can have in both physical and psychological therapies.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in this area then this course will arm you with knowledge of Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT), how they benefit, the role that animals can play in improving quality of life, and what is involved in providing therapy and handling an animal working in this role.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

You will learn how the veterinarian, dog owner and natural therapist can work perfectly together in order to provide the best possible holistic healthcare for the dog.

This course is ideal for all dog lovers and those looking to work in a canine related profession. It is also a fantastic study program to add to the Canine Nutrition Training course, which we also provide. Although each of the two is perfect as a standalone course the information given within each of them complements the other perfectly.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Canine Communication Course is of benefit to anyone who has regular contact with dogs. This could be as an owner, who would like to understand their pet better, and vice versa or in a dog/animal-related profession where this information could prove invaluable, such as for vets and dog trainers.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

Ideal for those looking to combine their love of dogs with an exciting new career.

This comprehensive and insightful course will take you from being a complete beginner in the Canine business industry to guiding you step by step through the processes needed to set up your exciting new venture. Jargon-free, the course is designed to aid those who struggle with business theories and just want plain, straightforward information that will help them to grow their business.

Upon completion of the course assessments you can gain insurance to set up your new business. This course is also ideal for those looking to learn some new skills to get a job working in a canine based role.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is ideal for all dog lovers.

Written by a canine behaviour specialist with over 15 years experience in the field and backed up by scientific knowledge, the course can help to change your life and your relationship with any dog that you come into contact with.

This course is ideal for those that have a dog or those that work with dogs in any capacity and want to understand and improve their relationships with their furry companion.

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.

The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course takes you step-by-step through the therapy process, exploring common practices and techniques to help clients to gain acceptance and begin to heal. This details the steps you can take to give a client immediate help with coping, to more long-term aid in the form of psychological healing. You will be introduced to various therapy tasks, options and practices that deal specifically with the grieving process, along with approaches that are specific to animal-related grief.

Grief can become more complicated and affect the mental health of the sufferer on a long-term basis. Through studying the course, you will learn to recognise the development of mental illness in clients and how to help these clients accordingly.

The need for pet bereavement counsellors is out there and in this course, we show you how to reach potential clients, along with how to create, grow and make a success of your business.

Who would benefit from this course?

With comprehensive materials covering grief, counselling, and techniques specific to this form of therapy, this course can be studied by anyone with an interest in the field and who would like to start their own business offering pet bereavement counselling as a service.

The lessons learned here will make an excellent add-on service to anyone already working as a counsellor and those working in animal and pet care services. You could also use the knowledge gained within to help you work through any loss of a pet that you yourself may have suffered.

10. Animal Reiki: Learn 3 Levels Of Reiki & The Benefits That Reiki Can Have On Animals

The course introduces Reiki with information on its history and the 5 Reiki Principles and how you can use them to transform yourself to become a perfect channel for spiritual energy. In addition to this, the course explores the basis of natural energy from the viewpoint of modern science and our natural alignment with traditional Eastern medicine.

There are practical considerations to make when working with animals, which are outlined in the course. These include legal aspects and awareness of the physical needs and requirements of animals, including an explanation of the 5 Freedoms.

The Animal Reiki Course will teach you about the 3 levels of Reiki and the benefits that Reiki can have on animals. You will also learn to strengthen your self-belief and harness a state of mind that embraces your beliefs and empowers your ability to heal with Reiki. With this mindset, you learn how to practice Reiki with self-healing, before moving on to practice on others.

To provide the most effective healing to animals, it is paramount that you understand their energy systems. From the Animal Reiki Certificate Course you will learn about animal spiritual energy, chakras and meridian channels, and explore the energy that we share with animals.

Who would benefit from this course?

This comprehensive and insightful course is aimed at complete beginners to Animal Reiki and takes your right through to becoming a confident and competent Animal Reiki Practitioner.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

Ideal for all pet lovers and those looking to combine their love of animals with an exciting new career!

The Animal Assisted Therapy Certificate Course can be studied as a general interest course, as the information within opens students up to the versatility and therapeutic power that the inclusion of animals can have in both physical and psychological therapies.

If you are interested in pursuing a career in this area then this course will arm you with knowledge of Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT), how they benefit, the role that animals can play in improving quality of life, and what is involved in providing therapy and handling an animal working in this role.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

You will learn how the veterinarian, dog owner and natural therapist can work perfectly together in order to provide the best possible holistic healthcare for the dog.

This course is ideal for all dog lovers and those looking to work in a canine related profession. It is also a fantastic study program to add to the Canine Nutrition Training course, which we also provide. Although each of the two is perfect as a standalone course the information given within each of them complements the other perfectly.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Canine Communication Course is of benefit to anyone who has regular contact with dogs. This could be as an owner, who would like to understand their pet better, and vice versa or in a dog/animal-related profession where this information could prove invaluable, such as for vets and dog trainers.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

Ideal for those looking to combine their love of dogs with an exciting new career.

This comprehensive and insightful course will take you from being a complete beginner in the Canine business industry to guiding you step by step through the processes needed to set up your exciting new venture. Jargon-free, the course is designed to aid those who struggle with business theories and just want plain, straightforward information that will help them to grow their business.

Upon completion of the course assessments you can gain insurance to set up your new business. This course is also ideal for those looking to learn some new skills to get a job working in a canine based role.

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.

Who would benefit from this course?

This course is ideal for all dog lovers.

Written by a canine behaviour specialist with over 15 years experience in the field and backed up by scientific knowledge, the course can help to change your life and your relationship with any dog that you come into contact with.

This course is ideal for those that have a dog or those that work with dogs in any capacity and want to understand and improve their relationships with their furry companion.

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.

The Pet Bereavement Counsellor Course takes you step-by-step through the therapy process, exploring common practices and techniques to help clients to gain acceptance and begin to heal. This details the steps you can take to give a client immediate help with coping, to more long-term aid in the form of psychological healing. You will be introduced to various therapy tasks, options and practices that deal specifically with the grieving process, along with approaches that are specific to animal-related grief.

Grief can become more complicated and affect the mental health of the sufferer on a long-term basis. Through studying the course, you will learn to recognise the development of mental illness in clients and how to help these clients accordingly.

The need for pet bereavement counsellors is out there and in this course, we show you how to reach potential clients, along with how to create, grow and make a success of your business.

Who would benefit from this course?

With comprehensive materials covering grief, counselling, and techniques specific to this form of therapy, this course can be studied by anyone with an interest in the field and who would like to start their own business offering pet bereavement counselling as a service.

The lessons learned here will make an excellent add-on service to anyone already working as a counsellor and those working in animal and pet care services. You could also use the knowledge gained within to help you work through any loss of a pet that you yourself may have suffered.

10. Animal Reiki: Learn 3 Levels Of Reiki & The Benefits That Reiki Can Have On Animals

The course introduces Reiki with information on its history and the 5 Reiki Principles and how you can use them to transform yourself to become a perfect channel for spiritual energy. In addition to this, the course explores the basis of natural energy from the viewpoint of modern science and our natural alignment with traditional Eastern medicine.

There are practical considerations to make when working with animals, which are outlined in the course. These include legal aspects and awareness of the physical needs and requirements of animals, including an explanation of the 5 Freedoms.

The Animal Reiki Course will teach you about the 3 levels of Reiki and the benefits that Reiki can have on animals. You will also learn to strengthen your self-belief and harness a state of mind that embraces your beliefs and empowers your ability to heal with Reiki. With this mindset, you learn how to practice Reiki with self-healing, before moving on to practice on others.

To provide the most effective healing to animals, it is paramount that you understand their energy systems. From the Animal Reiki Certificate Course you will learn about animal spiritual energy, chakras and meridian channels, and explore the energy that we share with animals.

Who would benefit from this course?

This comprehensive and insightful course is aimed at complete beginners to Animal Reiki and takes your right through to becoming a confident and competent Animal Reiki Practitioner.

Upon successful completion of the course assessments you can go on to obtain insurance to practice or, if you are already a Reiki Practitioner you can add Animal Reiki to the services that you offer. You can also use your new skills to help any of your own animals that you may have.
