Bark up the right tree with new Canine Nutrition Diploma Course

by Darren Jamieson on June 6, 2017

A new course on how dogs are affected by what they eat is now available from the Online Learning Academy (OLA), a digital learning resource that offers a variety of online courses backed up with tutor support.

The Canine Nutrition Diploma Course addresses the growing problem of many well-intentioned dog owners failing to realise that their dog’s diet is not as beneficial to their health as it might be.

Ideal for dog owners, or anyone considering a career in canine nutrition, the course covers everything from what nutrition means to your dog, to the link between diet and health, to the causes and symptoms of nutrition-related illness in canines. All information is presented in an easy to understand, personable and fun way, accompanied by memory aids to make some of the drier details a little more memorable.

Participants, who will learn interesting facts like what goes into dog food and how to make their own dog food, can reach out to the OLA team via email at any time for assistance, and will receive a certificate upon successful completion of the course. As part of the conclusion, students intending to put their newfound nutritional knowledge into professional use are pointed in the direction of some useful resources.

The course takes 15 to 20 hours to complete, and is currently available for £95. It is the latest in a range of internet-based courses made available by OLA, covering themes as diverse as blogging for business, paleo nutrition and tracing fake Facebook accounts.

Here at Dream Dogs we’ve secured a special discount on the course where, when you enter the code WOOF in the checkout, you can download the course today for just £25.
