Introduction to Companion Animal Behaviour and Training


Do you own or would you like to own a rabbit, guinea pig or other small mammal?

Then this course is for you!

Learn about the natural behaviour of these animals and how they have adapted to living in our homes.

You will learn about the correct food and water requirements for the species, as well as the best ways to clean out and to provide enrichment.

This course will include a practical element, using real-life animals at the Brinsbury College Animal Centre.

There will also be a Q&A session.

Saturday Session: 10:00 -15:00
