This course is for anyone who wishes to further their own knowledge of canine behaviour and training, either to expand their skill base or as the start of a whole new career. It focuses on experience and understanding, not simply academic theory. Many professionals started with this course and recommend it as a result. It really is life-changing education!


If you want to become proficient in helping others resolve issues with their dogs and design a future for yourself that is both compelling and achievable, there really is no better place to start.


 “It is rare that a course can change your lifebut ‘ThinkDog!’ really did change mine! Whether you are looking for a better understanding of your own dog, a way to enhance your career, or ways to improve animal welfare, this course is truly inspirational.”


I've found the course incredibly helpful. So much so that I now instruct part time at a local training centre!
