What is your cat revealing to you when she purrs? What is your dog expressing when he yawns or wags his tail? Understanding your cat and dog’s behaviour and the way they communicate with you, will enable you to better understand their needs and strengthen your relationship with them. This MOOC is divided into five topics, the appliance of science; behaviour and body language, senses and perception; challenges for the human-animal relationship, including pet problem behaviour; and how to improve the quality of life for cats and dogs in our care. At the start of the course we ask you to consider what you feel is important to your cat/dog and what your cat/dog means to you? We explore the world of cats and dogs and how our relationships with them vary around the world and have changed over time. We ask if we can really know what our animals are thinking or trying to communicate through their facial expressions and behaviours. From our beloved pets to street dogs, shelter dogs/cats and welfare challenges, we explore the world from their perspective and examine how their genetic make-up may influence their behavioural responses and choices. We dispel common behavioural myths by looking through a scientific lens, asking questions about the function and development of their behaviour.. We explore how their senses help them to interact with their world and how they communicate with each other and us! Finally, we ask whether we impose unrealistic expectations on our cats and dogs and how this affects their ability to live alongside us. We ask, what can we do to be more responsible pet owners and to ensure the welfare of all cats and dogs in society? This MOOC explores different scientifically validated methods that can help you to better understand your pet, to enrich their lives and help you to be a more educated and confident pet owner. We hope you enjoy the course!...

Although I read several books on dogs and cats, I have learned quite a lot in this course. I only wish there were a bit less repetitions from one week to the next, and that a step by step training for dog video was shown as a practical guideline.

The information provided was helpful and good information. However, it seemed as if most of the course was spent with the speakers telling us that they would provide the information in later videos. This could have been far more concise.

This class is decidedly a public service announcement for people acquiring their first pet. This course could be the introduction , the first class in a Specialization compromised of the uni's offerings on animal welfare.

This course has a lot of information about cats and dogs. I learned a lot of different things in this course I didn't know about cats. I learned all about the three different 'areas' a cat has around the yard, why cats like

Interesting. Helped me learn about ways to care for my old dog to better improve his mental wellbeing and how to recognize behavior and body language in my new cat as well as arrange his physical needs to better help him.

I found it helpful, entertaining and easy to understand.

I would have loved to have found more information about cats (interaction, adaptation, health problems...) since information about dogs is much more widely spread.

Good information but a bit repetitive, would have liked more information on changing unwanted behaviour such as barking, pulling on the lead, scrounging at the table especially for the older rescue dog

The questions that were just selecting breeds was the only negative part. They did not discuss those breeds in the videos. Otherwise, I enjoyed the class. I would give 4.5 stars if I could.

I learnt a lot about cats and dogs. Some of it is repetitive but that means you are more likely to finish the course with knowing the information well. Very enjoyable and recommend.

It was in insightful course. I learned several new things from the course. My only complaint would be that I wish it was a little more interactive. Good course. I am glad I did it.

This was an informative and enjoyable course. I really was only interested in the dog part, as I am allergic to cats! I look forward to using my new knowledge when I get a puppy.

The course is very interesting and informative. It tells about all the different aspects about behavior of cats and dogs including the history and myths behind it.

Much of the information in this course is specific to either dogs or to cats. Since my interest is only in dogs, I would have liked to be able to skip the other.
