Comments from our student’s on this module

I have loved every part of this course and have learnt so much more than I ever thought I would. The module guidelines and structure have been easy to follow and I have had fantastic feedback from my tutor Ross. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of my canine companions with my next chosen course.

Having previously completed the Basic Handling & Training course with the Cambridge Institute of Dog Behaviour and Training and learning so much from it in regards to theory and methods, I didn’t think twice about enrolling onto the Common Canine Behavioural Problems course, and was not disappointed.


Ruth Owen, who is a previous employer and good friend of mine, first influenced me to pursue education as to formalize my skills and fine tune what I had already learnt from my hands on work in rescue kennels, and I am very pleased that she recommended you at the CIDBT. I have found the course to be both inspiring and informative, and Ross as a lecturer to be very encouraging, honest and fair. I have learnt a lot from each individual module, and specifically enjoyed learning about breed specific behaviour as I feel that this is such an important factor in training and behaviour.


I have previously worked in a public facing role at Bristol Dogs Home, by meeting with owners and matching potential dogs up to their set ups as home, so already had a fair understanding of the public and general dog owners, though this course allowed me to see the relationship that a behavioural practitioner has with both the dog in question and their owner, and how much of a relationship is required to be built to gain the trust and confidence from the client in hand.


The course has also provided me with the information to enable me to start to build on my own behavioural report template, and form my own basis and guidelines for leadership from owner to dog.

Once again the course has been great and has been a real learning experience. It has been very helpful in drawing attention to a wide variety of common behaviour problems in dogs and has pushed me to discover valuable research in this field.


I have enjoyed writing up case studies which have been a great way of structuring information. At the beginning of this module my reports were extremely long and factual – not something I would give a client but very advantageous in getting to grips with the detail. However, at this stage I can now benefit from writing shortened, client-focused reports having the confidence to know that my knowledge is well researched and effective.


Ross has been a great mentor and course tutor. I hope that as I progress in my career that he will be available to guide and instruct me in difficult cases as I highly value his opinion and experience.


I’m looking forward to continuing my professional development by gaining further knowledge in the Advanced Common Behaviour Problems module and very much appreciate being able to participate in this institution.

Ross has been an excellent tutor. His feedback is great – the positive encouragement and acknowledgement of work well done is very satisfying and motivational and his criticism is both constructive and helpful. He is always really quick to get back to me and I love his relaxed, informal approach – it suits me perfectly.


I’ve had a really fantastic experience studying through CIDBT and hope to stay involved with the organisation – through assisting with workshops, one day tutoring myself or in any other suitable capacity.


Thanks so much!
