If you have an interest or love for dogs then it’s a perfect course. It provides a great building block if you wish to maybe progress to other courses in animal care, whilst giving you the ability to structure your study around your lifestyle. It’s certainly changed the way I interact with dogs especially now I have more of an understanding of why they do the things they do, signs and symptoms of illnesses along with causes, anatomy and job industries dealing with dogs. It wasn’t a chore to study but thoroughly interesting and enjoyable.
