As dogs are increasingly seen as part of the family, we also want to make them happy. In this exciting webinar, animal behaviour expert Zazie Todd will share insights from her forthcoming book Wag: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy, which features a foreword from none other than Dr. Marty Becker. The webinar will begin by looking at the role of emotions in a dog’s welfare, before sharing fascinating scientific research on dogs – and practical tips you can use with your own or clients’ dogs. The webinar will cover topics important for dog trainers and dog owners, including reasons to use reward-based training methods, why some enrichment should involve the nose, and why dogs play. As well, we will look at the important role of the owner in providing a secure base for their pet, and why this shows you should comfort a fearful dog (if they want it). Learning objectives: Understand the role of positive emotions (happiness) in dogs’ welfare Know why it is better to use reward-based training methods Identify ways to apply recent scientific knowledge in puppy socialization and dog training Develop tips for having happier dogs
