Course Description

Oddly enough, the contribution of behavioral science to helping people deal with dog behavioral problems and train dogs has only been modest. In this course, we will explore modern approaches to dog behavioral problems and training that incorporate the latest findings from behavioral science.

We will cover the use of behavioral functional analysis to:

  • uncover the causes of undesired behavior
  • explore just what it is about humans that dogs find reinforcing
  • critically evaluate different approaches to dog training
  • survey the use of temperament tests to assess the suitability of dogs for different roles

This course is part of the Dog Behavior and Cognition XSeries.

This course is approved for CEUs by the following organizations:

  • Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)
    • Students who pass will receive a certificate for a total of 6 CEUs for behavior consultants. Additional CEUs are avail...
