Learn about canine psychology, senses and behaviour, and basic dog training and obedience techniques. This dog training course is for anyone who owns dogs, works with dogs currently or plans to work with dogs in the future.

"I enrolled in the following courses: Dog Psychology, Behaviour & Training, and Pet Care First Aid. Enrolling with Online Courses Australia was extremely straightforward, quick & easy to do. I have always loved animals & have been drawn to them from a very young age. I'm currently volunteering at a not-for-profit Animal Shelter where we take care of the animals until their "furever" families are found via adoptions & I find the work very rewarding because I can see we are making a difference. I love that with OCA, you can study at your own pace whilst working FT/PT, juggling family commitments, unexpected health issues, and doing multiple courses at once or one at a time - it's extremely flexible working with your needs. I will definitely be referring others to OCA for the flexibility, ease, content, information-rich & lived, experienced Mentors & great value for money. I'm so glad I stumbled across your website!! Keep up the great work, OCA - one proud Aussie here 💜" - Kimberley Cruise
