Animal psychology and behaviour is a complex matter, just like the psychology of humans. Birds migrate, peacock’s show their plumage, and penguins give each other stones as “love tokens”, but why? Why does your dog bark at the hoover? Or whenever a plane flies overhead? This course will answer all the questions you have wondered about the seemingly untranslatable mind of an animal.

This course will help you to understand the events which shape the development of a wide range of animals, birds and insects which makes them unique, just like human beings. Veterinarians and animal trainers are examples of professions within animal psychology.
