Territorial response behaviours run the gambit from obnoxious but harmless alert barking to full blown aggressive displays, including attack behaviours, leading to serious injuries. Through the process of domestication and selective breeding humans have attempted to control and strengthen these natural responses, leaving some breeds genetically predisposed to territorial behaviour. The question that remains is; are these dogs suited to urban and family environments and if so how do we work with the dog’s natural tendencies to reduce the risk of injury and legal liability? The early signs of territorial behaviour in young dogs are often either dismissed or confused with a fear response. Misidentification can lead to the implementation of the wrong techniques and inadvertently promote the very behaviour the owner is trying to remove. This 4 hour course will teach you; where this behaviour comes from, how identify territorial behaviour and how to develop a management program best suited for the individual dog and their unique living situation. Topics covered include: The origins of territorial behaviour Recognizing guarding behaviour patterns Assessing territorial guarding & triggers Evaluating rehabilitation risks Realistic goal setting Treatment suggestions Designing treatment programs
