Canine Studies – Distance Learning Modules

Are you looking to develop your understanding of dogs without the pressure of attending college and with the option of working towards a recognised qualification?

Course content

The online distance learning modules (delivered by Reaseheath Canine Academy) are as follows:

  • Canine Care and Welfare
  • Canine Nutrition
  • Canine Anatomy and Physiology
  • Canine Behaviour and Communication

You can either choose to:

  • Study an individual module – ideal if you wish to develop your knowledge within a key area i.e. canine behaviour
  • Study all four modules and achieve a Level 3 Certificate in Canine Studies, accredited by Open College Network West Midlands
Why Reaseheath Canine Academy?

  • Online learning content will enable you to engage in your studies at your own convenience.
  • Your online learning content, assignments and feedback will be provided by qualified assessors, who are experienced within the canine industry.

Six months per module, from the date of receiving access to the online learning content.

  • £300 for your first module
  • £270 (10% OFF) for any subsequent modules
  • Reliable internet access – to access course material and submit assignments
  • Email access – to communicate with your course manager
