I’ve always had a very keen interest in canine behaviour and started the CIDBT courses to further my education. The mix of theory and practical courses available were fantastic, fun and gave me a well-rounded and informed insight into canine behaviour. This became particularly relevant when I took on a rescue Labrador, Zuri, with severe fear aggression towards dogs and horses. By implementing everything I had learned I was able to positively reform his behaviour and very quickly Zuri became a well balanced, kind and confident dog. He can now deal with any situation calmly, adores our other Labrador, Storm, and loves nothing more than hacking out with me and my horse!
Research now suggests that poor gut health can significantly affect our dog’s behaviour. The gut is the core of any animal’s health which determines the health ofother organs and functions.
