It was practical and enthusing. I now definitely have a better understanding of cat behavior and canine cognitive dysfunction

Excellent background information on cat behavior rather just focusing on one aspect. Can apply information to a range of cat related behavioral problems

What will I learn on this course?

Session 1

Canine Cognitive Dysfunction

  • How to assess the severity of a problem and identify the best treatments

  • Treatment of CCD, including modification to the diet, physical and social environment, as well as drug treatment

Session 2

Fear of Loud Noises in Dogs

  • How to make owners aware that their dog needs help: the use of screening tools, such as online questionnaires, to help detect cases of noise fear in dogs
  • How to differentiate between mild, moderate and severe problems, and identify the dogs that are genuinely phobic and not just afraid of loud noises
  • Current evidence on demographics of noise fears in dogs and how to prevent noise fears
  • How generalisation and conditioned associations lead to worsening problems in fearful dogs

  • Evidence for the health impact of conflict
  • What happens when conflict leads to spraying, injuries and destructiveness
