The School of Canine Science is proud to present 'The Puppy Lab'. The Puppy Lab represents everything we wish we knew before we picked up our first puppies, conducted puppy 1-2-1's and ran those all important puppy classes. On top of that we've left it all on the table, if it's about puppies and we know about it, it's in this course. This is everything we know about puppies.
This course is rounded and complete! We cover the science, delve into the theory, explore the practical application of this theory, introduce mechanical handling skills and then detial how to put this information into practice.
We want anyone that completes this course to be armed with everything they need to know about puppies, be confident & educated in their choices and recommendations, but above all else make sure that the dogs they interact with start life on the right track.
Between us we've handled more dogs than we can ever count, coached thousands of trainers & owners and spend thousands and thousands of pounds collecting information from all accross the globe. We've distilled this down into on place, right here.
