This seminar dvd can be found at www.tawzerdog.com Using slides, examples from her case files, and dozens of videos, Dr. Karen London discusses both dog-dog and dog-human play.She also discusses the relationship between aggression and play. Since aggression and play are so closely linked, considering them together provides great insight into both areas of canine behavior. Dr. London talks about recent scientific developments about play that are relevant to anybody who is interested in or spends a lot of time with dogs. This seminar goes over the reasons play can escalate into aggression, how to tell if dogs playing together are acting appropriately or are headed for trouble, the signs of excessive arousal that often occur when dogs play, and includes a discussion of dogs’ play signals. Dr. London explains how following simple rules can prevent the escalation of play into aggression, the one unbreakable rule of dog-dog play, the benefits and risks of common games people play with their dogs, why play is such an important part of the relationship between people and dogs, and how play can be used to treat certain aggression cases.
