GC103 – Educating and empowering the effective puppy owner


Puppy Power

Split into two elements, this course enables you to learn to recognise the psychology behind your owners behaviour and establish a solid means of educating them in canine behaviour and in particular puppy training. We will reflect on current puppy training methods and analyse why many puppies in today’s society require a higher level of management.

Breeding, social ranking, environment, and owner perception will all be taken into consideration on this thought  provoking course designed to provide every canine professional with a further depth  of knowledge,  increased confidence and a solid means of teaching an owner effective puppy management techniques.
