Twenty years ago, the very idea of a dog psychologist would have been ridiculed. If you had a problem dog it was believed that it was your fault - the ‘no bad dogs only bad owners’ theory - and the only remedy was to either suffer in silence and shame or destroy the dog.
Fortunately we have moved on from those days. It is now known that as many as 40% of dog owners experience difficulties with their dogs and increasing numbers are seeking help in the form of behaviour therapy.
Canine behaviour therapy attempts to modify the dog’s behaviour using tried and tested psychological principles for the benefit of both the dog and the owner. Therefore, in order to practise the therapy effectively, a sound understanding and knowledge of the underlying psychological theory is essential.
This Course was produced in response to requests from our own clients and dog owners throughout the country. There is no other book, manual or home study course that covers canine and human psychology in such depth, making it readily accessible to all.
The Course was written by a team of experienced, qualified practising dog psychologists. The aim is to help anyone with an interest in dogs to think laterally, to make full use of the theoretical knowledge that the Course provides and apply it to the solving of all kinds of problems. The Course is not a ‘recipe book’ with problems and solutions; instead it emphasises the uniqueness of individual cases and the need to consider each dog and its owner as an individual problem.
You Don’t Have to Become a Dog Psychologist to Benefit from the Course
The Course has been designed and written for those wanting to enter the profession of dog psychology. But the information it contains can be of benefit and interest to all dog owners. In fact we would go so far as to say it is essential reading for every dog owner! We guarantee that there are many questions you always wanted to ask about dogs.
- Why does my dog hate the postman and nobody else?
- Can my dog understand what I say?
- What does my dog dream about?
- How can I teach my dog to fetch my slippers?
- Is punishment effective?
- If my dog can’t feel guilt, why does he look guilty?
- Why does my dog always bark in the car?
All these, and many more questions will be answered.
Even if you have no intention of working as a dog psychologist, the Course promises to give you an insight into why your dog thinks and acts as he does which can only enrich your relationship with him. It will also explain how problems arise so that you can prevent yourself becoming a problem dog owner.
The Canine Behaviour Centre Dog Psychology Home Study Course is an investment not only in your future – but that of your dog’s future too.
We look forward to welcoming you on to the Course and helping you discover a fascinating new world.
