CPD Certified Provider of Training Excellence Training Approved by Skills for Care

Wouldn't it be great if dogs could talk?

Learning how to read and interpret subtle body language and facial expression will allow us to understand what a dog is really trying to tell us. Being able to read a dog will allow you to understand and even predict canine behaviour. This fascinating subject will open up a whole new way of communicating with your dog that you may not even have realised was possible. You will truly begin to speak dog.

Does a dog lying on its back really want a belly rub? Is a wagging tail a sign of a happy dog? Can dogs feel guilt? This course will begin to answer some of the most misunderstood canine behaviours and as a result will change the way you interact with dogs forever.
