Science Simplified: Learning Theory

Course Overview

Have you ever wondered how your pet learns behaviours?  From dogs, to horses, to cats and kittens all our pets learn through the same ways, in that sense every brain is the same. From Pavlov’s dogs to the application of rewards in training, this Science Simplified course will take you through the topic of learning theory.

Through the course, you will learn how animals learn behaviours, how all training is science and how learning theory underpins almost all the science related to training.
