In March 2019, I successfully achieved the Level 6 (degree level) “Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management” from Animal Jobs Direct. This means I can now use the designation “Adip CBM” after my name.
As part of the Advanced Diploma, I had to write a thesis which should extend existing knowledge while encouraging further discussion. My choice of thesis subject was “Can Choice Help to Build Resilience in Dogs”. It reviews existing scientific research while identifying future areas of potential study, to formulate a reasoned argument. A copy is enclosed here if anyone wishes to read it and I am happy to discuss any aspect of it, as I believe that future research starts with discussion.
