Roger Abrantes brings a unique perspective to dog and animal behavior through his experience working with numerous species around the world. Born in Portugal, Abrantes speaks seven languages and has written 17 books on animal behavior. He is currently researching, writing and lecturing on behavior and evolution at the Ethology Institute Cambridge, touring the world with seminars and talks, and diving in Thailand. This seminar, which has never been given in the United States, will have four main modules: 1. On Behavior 2. On Signals, Cues, Commands and Changing Behavior 3. On Aggression, Fear, Dominance and Submission 4. On Leadership This seminar will include time in the enclosures with Wolf Park's wolves. There will also be live demonstrations with dogs to show how we can communicate with our own dogs and teach them many behaviors without the need of gizmos, using our own body language, facial expressions, etc.
