All of our ISCP diploma students complete their studies with a thesis in order to graduate. This can take the form of a study of a specific aspect of dog behaviour and psychology, or an in-depth case study, or independent research into an area which hasn’t previously been explored by animal researchers.

We don’t usually share these, but ISCP graduate Linda Cooper engaged in cutting edge research into the effect of particular forms of exercise in highly stressed dogs. With Linda’s permission we’re sharing this publicly, as this information could make a significant difference to the improved wellbeing of dogs and their carers.

You can read “Reactive Dogs and Exercise: Can modifying the daily exercise regime improve behaviour?” as a PDF file here.
