Pet Sense College


Pet Sesne College

Compass Education and Training courses are now available in South Africa! Pet Sense College, in parternship with Compass Education and Training, is now offering courses to South African students who want to work with animals in a professional capacity.
Our seven canine and feline correspondence courses are exclusive ranging from level 3 diplomas to degree equivalent level 5 diplomas.


There are many people in South Africa who make a living out of working with animals because it's just something that they are really good at. These courses give them the opportunity to augment their calling with expanded knowledge and a formal qualification.Have a look below for a brief overview of the courses on offer.

Canine Behaviour Courses

Advanced Diploma – Canine Behaviour Management

The aim of the course is to prepare participants academically to work in the role of canine behaviour advisor. It is designed to be the definitive course on canine behaviour management for those who cannot afford the time (or money) to go to university to study animal behaviour. This course is not open to all because of the technical nature of the material and potential students will have to demonstrate their ability to study at this level (Degree equivalent /Foundation degree) before being accepted. It should be noted that a long standing, 'hands on' knowledge of dogs will not normally be accepted as adequate qualification to register on this programme without prior study although each case is judged on its own merits.

Canine Aggression – Diploma

This programme is aimed at the more advanced student, who needs an understanding of aggressive behaviour in dogs for professional reasons, what causes it, how to recognise the warning signs and finally handle it. The 4 modules focus on defining and recognising aggression along with development of aggression and handling of aggression.

Canine Behaviour and Psychology – Diploma

The aim of the course is to introduce participants to the behaviour and psychology of the domestic dog. It is designed to equip students with a basic knowledge of normal and unusual behaviours and their purposes or what they can tell us about the dog.

Foundations of Canine Behaviour Management – Diploma

This course has been developed for those who aim to complete the Advanced Diploma in Canine Behaviour Management but would benefit from some preparatory studies. Normally we would expect inexperienced people to follow a logical progression of courses in preparation but for those with some experience of working with dogs this course provides a shorter route. It comprises a selection of the most relevant modules from established courses.

Canine Communications – Diploma

This programme is designed to equip the student with the knowledge to 'read' and understand how and what dogs communicate to each other and to humans. This is essential if one is to be working with dogs or engaged in training or behaviour therapy.

Feline Behaviour Courses

Feline Behaviour and Psychology– Diploma

As well as being an enjoyable course, this is designed to be a serious introduction to the fascinating subject of feline behaviour. Obviously the subject matter is huge and it would be impossible to cover it all in a course of this size, however more advanced courses are planned.

Advanced Diploma – Feline Behaviour Management

The aim of the course is to prepare participants academically to work in the role of feline behaviour advisor. It is designed to be the definitive course on feline behaviour management for those who cannot afford the time (or money) to go to university to study animal behaviour. This course is not open to all because of the technical nature of the material and potential students will have to demonstrate their ability to study at this level (Degree equivalent /Foundation degree) before being accepted. It should be noted that a long standing, 'hands on' knowledge of cats will not normally be accepted as adequate qualification to register on this programme without prior study although each case is judged on its own merits.
