You have heard much of dog ethology. But how does understanding it benefit dog trainers? This presentation will benefit people who train dogs, and especially those who work with behavior concerns, by looking into and understanding dog behavior under “natural” conditions. If humans were not taking care of the dog, how does it survive? What role did dogs play with humans before they became companions or “pets”? This webinar is an introductory look at dog ethology, starting with when ethology came into the field of science and then looking at what it has done to enhance our understanding of why dogs do what they do, and how we can use that knowledge in our daily work and life with dogs.
