GC206w – Looking at dogs from the inside out – understanding canine anatomy and physiology for dog trainers


The Physical Dog

A truly fascinating one day workshop which ‘peels away’ the layers of your dog and teaches you about the mechanics of man’s best friend is preceded by a home-study element which introduces you to the various anatomical systems which really help you to understand not only the dog you see, but the bit under the skin that you don’t.

Canine movement (both generally and breed type specific), gait, posture analysis and the various organ systems are all covered; not only from an anatomical and physiological perspective, but also from a behaviour and training viewpoint.
