SEMINAR PROGRAM
5.5 CEU's per day
ATTENDANCE LIMITED TO 40
Days One & Two • Saturday & Sunday • May 5th & 6th • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

DAYS ONE & TWO examine the relationship that owners have with their dogs, defining what is meant by aggression as distinct from an aggressive display, genetics, the role of the environment in development, breed traits and learning theories.

We look at dogs that are aggressive towards people: the reasons that this occurs, the categories of aggression and how we assess and measure behavior prior to and during a behavior program.

We then look at dogs that aggress towards other dogs and once again examine the reasons behind this behavior. Strategies for carrying out behavioral evaluations on dog/dog aggression are covered and also strategies for improving a dog's behavior.

FORMS OF AGGRESSION COVERED INCLUDE:

  • Food Aggression
  • Nervous Aggression Toward People
  • Dog Aggression On Lead
  • Dog Aggression Off Lead
  • Possession Aggression
  • Protective Aggression

Day Three • Monday May 7th • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

DAY THREE looks at behavior modification programs used in reversing aggressive behavior and also looks at spontaneous recovery, allellomimetic behavior, the effect of hormones on aggressive behavior and the reduction of aggression through control training.

Although designed as a stand alone, this course is ideally suited to those students who have some experience training and handling difficult dogs.
