This workshop will include the basic biological basis for canine aggression with discussions about why these matter. The science should inform our thinking about aggression and our training methods, but science cannot decide the values we apply. In addition, science has too few resources to definitively study all available training techniques in controlled, repeatable experiments. We will cover what we know about the biological role of aggression and the ways it is facilitated and mediated in mammals (particularly our dogs). We will look at the strengths and limits of scientific research related to behavior in general and aggression in particular to help us understand the limits on what we can know. We will also engage in discussions about how to meaningfully use this information in the context of this unique dog/human relationship.
