How can people recognise that you have a solid understanding of both behavioural science and the practical skills required to work in the field of animal behaviour and training?
There are many courses available in animal behaviour and training but how do you know which one to choose? Well, this depends on what your aims and ambitions are. If you want to improve your knowledge and understanding of your pet then there are probably many courses that could provide this for you.
However, if you want to work within the pet behaviour therapy and training industry then this qualification is more likely to fulfil your education needs.
