Low Stress Handling in Dogs

We all know how stressed dogs can be in practice – and how this can manifest at all levels – from  showing mild signs of anxiety to being or becoming completely unmanageable by veterinary staff and even the owner. This is not good for us, the owner OR the dog!

This interactive, tutored course will look at some basic background dog behaviour, give you tools for reading the signs of stress, and help you to learn ideas and solutions for making canine visits easier and more harmonious for everyone!  We’ll also look at how to educate owners in making their dog’s visit less stressful.

As part of the course you’ll even create a protocol and leafet (with feedback from your tutor) to take back to practice and share your learning.


All of our courses are 100% online, and run over a set period as a group. You can access the course lectures, guidelines and materials on our friendly learning platform at any time during the course, and complete work at your own pace.

Courses are fully tutored and our discussion-based approach means that you can discuss topics with your peers and share problems and solutions, with the input, guidance and support of your tutor throughout.

You will receive feedback on coursework, and all of our CPD is certified as formal/assessed distance learning.
