Course Description

The study of animal behaviour provides a foundation for animal training, which also known as animal care. It provides real insights and a foundation for understanding on how to treat animals. This course examines the cognitive and physical behaviour of animals as well as the reasons behind it.  Furthermore animal social behaviour will also be covered. 

Course Objectives

  • Identifying factors affecting animal behaviour
  • Learning the influence of genes on animal behaviour
  • Understanding how animals perceive and how they respond to various stimuli
  • Understanding the influence of environment factors
  • Understanding the social influences on animal aggression, play, sexual behaviour, communication and other behaviour
  • Understanding different ways that animals learn (such as conditioning and habituation) and some effects of learning on behaviour

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone wishing to learn more about Animal Behaviour and would like to take part in a highly rewarding home study course
