Frequently Asked Questions Cheat Sheet
Where is the university located?
Wherever you want it to be. On your phone, tablet, desktop – any internet device.
What facilities does the university have?
In our imagination, it is state of the art. With lots of paddle pools in the shape of huge bones; quiet rooms where dogs can chill; huge ballrooms where dogs can dance & sing (loudly); lots of trees and grassy areas for outdoors stuff; and the best gourmet dining room on the planet.
Is there parking available?
No. Then there would be parking meters, and parking rangers & parking fines. Grrrrr!
What qualifications do the lecturers and professors have?
Heaps. Lots of life experiences too.
It’s not a real university, is it?
It is hard to define “real”. Let’s say it is real-great, real-fun, real-easy.

Do the dogs have to complete assignments?
Did you do all your assignments at school, or did your dog eat your homework?
There are no assignments as such however there are plenty of activities your dog can do for each degree. That’s when you take photos and/or short videos and upload them onto social media pages as proof to brag. We call it the “Academic Record”!
What about field work?
Oh, we do love field work. This is where the bragging & skiting takes over. Take photos and/or videos of any activities in each degree. Upload them onto social media pages (yours and ours) and brag, brag, brag your heart out. We love seeing doggies doing their thing just as much as you do!
What do I do once I’ve selected the degree I want for my pooch?

“Add Dog Image” Button – to upload a photo of your dog (MAXIMUM 1000 X 1000 pixels). You can adjust the photo and move it to ensure correctly placed.
Two To-Do Things to personalise your Diploma and Degree documents.
Can I add my dog’s photo to the Diploma and Degree document?
You most certainly can. It’s easy to upload the image onto the Diploma/Degree you have selected. The photo will appear at the bottom of the diploma, degree document. The quality is dependent on the quality of your photo, and size, of course.
** Click on the “Add Dog Image” Button on the degree. (a box will be displayed for you to upload photo)
