Learn To Be A Dog Detective

This was an excellent course led by Alex Wilson. Really interesting discussions from a lovely mixed group of participants who ranged from professionals in the pet industry, students of dog behaviour/ training and pet owners. Everybody wanted to gain and share as much knowledge as possible to do the best they can for their clients and companion animals. The day was well planned and presented.

Marie Miller, Tellington TTouch Instructor

Learn about the 4 core principles of canine body language on this course

1. How to read the subtle signs; we explore, individually the dog’s eyes, ears, mouth, tail, coat and posture in depth. We will also explore the link between posture and behaviour along with understanding about coat patterns in dogs.

2. Canine emotions deep dive; we will look at the link between emotions and body language. What does aggression, fear, anxiety or happiness look like in dogs? Are dog capable of guilt, does a dog who rolls on their back really want their tummy tickled?

3. Dog Dog interactions, we will learn about what is appropriate play and what is not.

4. We learn about the link between posture and behaviour and will also find out what Free Work is and why it is a brilliant tool to read a dog’s body language. We will also look at how to observe dogs and think about how the environment may influence the outcome of what the dog is telling us.

What Do Clients Think Of This Course

I would not hesitate to recommend anyone who has an interest in dogs to attend one of these sessions, not just professionals but pet dog owners. This would give them invaluable insight into their dogs behaviour and could be saving themselves and their dog a lifetime of problems and stress.

The instructor for the day, Alex Wilson had a great easy going, approachable yet professional manner. He obviously had the days agenda to go through with the aid of slides and pictures but seemed perfectly happy and comfortable to veer off course and answer open questions throughout the session. He demonstrated a clear understanding of the subject but without preaching and continually invited discussion and opinions from the group.


Ali Buck, dog trainer

Excellent canine body language course. Very interesting, informative easy to understand and perfectly delivered by the instructor Alex Wilson.


Amanda Burton, Pro Dog Trainer

I throughly enjoyed my recent course.  Alex Wilson made it very interesting and relaxed. We all took part in the layout of the course which made it easy to stay focused on the topic of Canine Body Language and take in the information taught. I took a lot on board and some great ideas, which I’m using on my very stubborn English Bull. It’s also given me confidence in my thinking of wanting to do more work with Dogs personally and maybe even eventually, on a professional level?
