This is an online interdisciplinary course which helps animal professionals and pet owners get happier animals and develop a better relationship with animals in their care. The course addresses why it's important to understand emotions in order to better predict responses, prevent undesirable behaviour, problem solve more efficiently and prioritize more effectively. The course is given by an ethologist specialized in animal welfare, covering the 7 core emotions in animals: CARE, GRIEF, PLAY, LUST, SEEKING, FEAR, and RAGE - and much more. The course starts on Nov 11th, and consists of recorded films and close-knit discussion groups.
