What is COAPE?

COAPE was established in 1993 to provide benchmark education courses, training, and professional development for anyone interested in studying companion animal behaviour and therapy.

COAPE’s ethos and education courses start with the fundamental premise that the success of all mammals (and birds as well) is absolutely dependent on their emotional sensitivity. The intrinsic association of how they feel and how they learn, or how they form social relationships with their own kind and with us, is in the very nature of animals.

What is breakthrough?

By Val Strong MSc.

“For many years I have studied how food can influence mood, emotions and behaviour in dogs. Just like humans our dogs can feel happy, sad, fearful and a wide range of emotions can affect their behaviour, which can make them difficult to train and to live with at times. An unhappy or fearful dog is much more difficult to motivate and an overexcited or anxious dog is far less able to focus calmly when meeting people or other dogs. Our dogs can understandably find it difficult to cope with some of the daily stressors of our busy lifestyles and may take time to learn how to live in our human world.”

breakthrough helps stabilise moods and emotions by increasing the level of key ‘feel-good’ brain neurotransmitters which help our dogs to feel relaxed and happy with life in our families, better able to cope with everyday challenges in our world and how to respond well in training.”
