This course recognise’s that there is so much more to the dog than just what may be observed on the outside. Whether you are a dog owner with a passion for learning or a canine professional, the course is designed to provide a detailed physical study of canine anatomy and physiology, an essential consideration for building a clear picture of the dog as a whole.
Ever wondered what’s going on inside, how normal body functions affect the behaviour responses of the dog, and what possibilities there are for behaviour to be affected when body systems go wrong? The behaviour of the dog is affected by numerous factors including interactions between body systems, nutrition, environmental circumstances, genetics and relationships. This is the course to answer all complex questions pertaining to the physical structure and activity of the canine form.
It all starts with one little cell! The course begins by visiting molecular physiology (the cell) and moves on to a detailed understanding of the ‘working canine body’, regulation and control of all processes and complex interactions between body systems. You are provided a depth of knowledge that will enhance your understanding of canine behaviour and help you work more efficiently with your own dog and/or develop successful training and behaviour programs for clients.
Particular attention is given to systemic anatomy – providing core knowledge on the following body systems:
Understanding how these organs and systems interact and affect the behaviour of the dog, particularly when anomalies arise will provide students with a core depth of clinical knowledge to support an evaluation. Guidance is given on recognising important medical indicators for serious illness or disease.
“I was looking to change career’s and follow my passion into the dog industry.
I looked at many courses then I found CIBDT. I live up in the North East and these courses where down South. It was one of the best decisions I made and the travel just became part of an exciting journey.
I’ve lost count how many courses I took online and participant in classroom environments and practical workshops. I’ve met fellow students that have gone on to be life long friends.
Education has to be informative and reach everyone on a personal level. The environment has to be friendly, inviting and comfortable. These courses met all this criteria and more.
I’ve gone on to work with rescue’s and dog’s with behaviour struggles from traumatic backgrounds and experiences and writing behaviour modification plan’s for rehabilitation. My confidence grew by choosing these courses with CIBDT giving me the tools to choose my own path in the dog industry and giving me the opportunity to learn and enjoy at the same time.”
