This is a FIVE DAY CERTIFICATION COURSE in Applied Ethology and Family Dog Mediation which provides thorough scientific examination of the intersection of canine and human evolution, welfare, behavior, and relationship in the modern world. Kim will discuss the essential role of the ethological lens in our professional task of understanding and mediating human-dog relationships. Seminarians will be guided through Kim’s trademarked L.E.G.S.® initiative (Learning, Environment, Genetics, and Self), widely praised by colleagues; internationally as ground-breaking for the dog behavior industry. During this intensive five-day course, attendees will be given a solid and comprehensive foundation in the integrated science of Applied Ethology to expand their professional knowledge base and ability to accurately identify and effectively treat a range of serious behavior cases. Students will additionally have the unprecedented opportunity to witness the covered applied ethology course concepts through live demonstrations with the wolves at the park, as well as to experience how to practically apply this science in behavior assessments and interventions through live Family Dog Mediation™ demonstrations with Kim and real local clients seeking help for their canine companions. Complete coursebook with additional resources and references will be provided. Attendees will receive a certificate and the designation of Family Dog Mediator (FDM).
