In this two-part webinar series, we will look at the biological and environmental causes of dog aggression from DNA through gut biomes to chronic stress. We will look at the biological mechanisms behind different management and treatment options so you better understand what might work and when. A dive into the intrinsic biological controls of aggression, the biological basis of aggression management through mechanical controls to medical aggression reducers. THE PLEDGE • The aggressive-dog partner pledge about the responsibilities for your dog’s actions • How normal aggression is biologically “managed” by dogs o Arousal o Neurological control o Behavior control • What dog partners can do about aggression o Ignore it (these escalate) o Knowing a dog’s predispositions  Genetic markers  Signs and symptoms MANAGEMENT • Situation management (how these affect dog’s hormones and parasympathetic nervous system • Biological basis for a sampling of representative physical tools of aggression management, from the appropriate & useful to the inappropriate and likely harmful: o Thunder shirts o Prong & shock collars o Muzzles • Behavior training & different types of learning: o Dogs: how canines learn o Humans: how humans learn o The biological basis for common training methods such as:  Counter Conditioning & Desensitization (CC & D)  Behavior Adjustment Training (BAT)  Impulse Control and other forms of behavior modification • Medical intervention o Common drugs and how they work on the organism o Euthanasia: how those drugs work
