Great course! It develops each topic comprehensively and combines old and new approaches to how we can improve our relationship with our dogs and help dogs learn to be included in our society.

Interesting insights about how dogs think and what we perceive through their behavior. Taken purely for personal enrichment. Wish I'd had more time available to work with the lab material.

Compared to the other courses, this one is kind of boring, but learned some origination of dogs :)

The instructor advertised his book and website so much that it took away from the content.

too detailed, too much information to process but the lecturer was actually pretty fun.

It strays away from the main topic 50% of the times, but still very interesting

En general está ok! pero siento que muchas clases son bastante repetitivas.

I think it is a bit complicated to those who have no basic knowledge in this discipline some professional terms are hard to understand even with definition because words are to difficult and rarely seen in daily life and the mode of conducting the lecture I would say is quite boring and passive as the lecturer is just standing still to read script and show powerpoints it is not good to detonate knowledge and for us to really get deep to it I would recommend more experiment video or illustration to make this funnier and rise our intention to learn dogs should be a topic contains loads of fun and is not supposed to be this informatively boring

I find this course redundant and useless. You can simply learn how to train your dog without having to take a course. You simply feed and training a dog not to bark, obey commands and obey verbal commands with some authority as dogs have a pack mentality. You do not need a course to learn this!

The audio is not very good and it's uncomfortable to watch some of the videos because of it. The subtitles aren't correct most of the times, so you can't watch them on mute either. The content is good overall and I would've enjoyed the course a lot more if the quality of the material was better.

very little contents are actually about dogs, i know background theories are important, but they really take too much of the time compared to the real dog related topic

Videos kept cutting out either entirely or the sound would cut out. Made it very difficult to follow.

good content, and good teacher, but Coursera managed to screw up the delivery: the training started on the 18 of August (you could not enrol prior than that), lasts 8 weeks and the final assignment due date is on the 6th. of September, so you are set for failure, and this why I will NEVER pay for their courses.

Basically you are due the final assignment one month BEFORE the last lecture, so either you rush and do 2 or more weeks of lectures every week or you cannot complete the training AND making the assignment. Just for the lazy ones: 16th of August + 8 weeks is 11th October. So, word of advice: do not pay for the course hoping to have a certificate or you will waste the money

Too much emphasis on a misguided belief in the religion of Darwinism. Focus more on real scientific evidence of dog behavior, and the course will be much better.

An extended sales pitch not a course!
