Aggression is a critical issue in dog behavior. Understanding the underlying factors and motivations for aggression is necessary if we are going to maximize our ability to successfully address it. Drawing from research on aggression in other species can help inform our work with dogs. Other disciplines define aggression differently. Learn how researchers categorize aggression and how this information can add perspective and insight to the assessment and behavior modification of aggression. Another key area for understanding is the neurobiology of aggression. Neurobiology can shed light on the underlying causes and motivations for behavior. This webinar will include a brief review of the neurobiology of aggression. Finally, we will review dog-specific research on factors linked to aggression. We’ll conclude by pulling everything together and discussing the implications for the assessment and treatment of aggressive behavior in dogs. This webinar will bring you up-to-speed on the latest science and increase your success rate with aggression cases. The webinar will be recorded and available one day following the event if you cannot attend live.
