This webinar examines several recent scientific studies that examine problem behaviours in dogs (and how we label these problems). Students will learn how to critically evaluate scientific studies and to assess how applicable study results are to every day dog training practice. Specific examples used in this webinar will also challenge prevailing views of certain types of behaviour that owners identify as problematic (barking, excitability) and will address how perceptions of these behaviours may influence the way in which we approach prevention and treatment.
