Dogs are our Best Friends, and this short course aims to help you to be a Best Friend Forever to the dogs in your life. You’ll receive an illustrated 73 page course textbook in PDF format, and a multiple choice questionnaire to complete and return after you’ve read the book. After your questionnaire has been assessed, you will receive The Dog’s BFF Award certificate as a .jpg file that you can print and frame or put on your website. This will demonstrate that you have a good basic understanding of dog behaviour.
