DOGS THAT MAKE YOU GO ... WTF? Learning how to go from Force to Finesse
Living with a young exuberant dog, a performance dog, or a dog with opinions? Sometimes living with a dog is not as straight forward as you had planned. We become a student and our dog becomes the teacher. This is a fun, fast paced, and information packed talk on how to live with a dog that is more like a Ferrari when what you wanted was a VW Bus.
FEBRUARY 12th 2015 - TWO CASE STUDIES - AGGRESSION IN THE FAMILY PET -
Reviewing two case studies on aggression in family pets. Nature and nurture both play a large role in how a dog feels about their world, but where we humans can get super goofed up is when we take advice that actually causes more harm than good, and then we label our dogs, changing how we feel about them. These two cases are deeply interesting, and informational of what works and what does not. Also a discussion on 'what is aggression, what is aggressive behavior and what is not'.
