This course Introduces students to some important measures that may be taken to prevent the conditioning of aggressive behaviors in dogs. It discussed basic principles of prevention and then explores issues of early recognition, bite inhibition training (including what it may and may not achieve), management of dog–child interactions, the problem of tying dogs out and utilizing aversive stimulation, the benefits of puppy classes and general non coercive training. This course explains why “dominance” and other such notions are distracting and counterproductive and it provides instructions for prevention training with toy possession, handling, and food bowls some of the more commonly problematic issues in adulthood for some dogs.
