Publisher's Summary

What you'll learn from the Canine Behaviour training course:

This is an excellent course designed for everyone that lives or works with dogs that should have a good grounding in canine communication and behaviour.

It is really important to know how to recognise whether a dog is scared, sad, over-excited, or anxious even if you are only living with one dog. More so if you look after other people's pets in any setting.

This course is a complete overview of the modern dog. It covers everything from how the dog evolved and became part of the human existence right through to how his brain works. By studying this you will be learning the most up to date and proven methods of dog communication, training, and how to live a relaxed life with your own dogs.

People love dogs. Do we understand dogs though? Can you tell if a dog in the room with you is worried? Do you know what a calming signal is or how long adrenaline takes to leave the body of a dog? Do you know why dogs bite or that although they share most of their DNA with the wolf their behaviour is very different?

You will have a greater understanding of dog training and behaviour modification methods and know how they came about as common practice, plus how they affect the dog. You will be able to recognise key body language, gestures, and signals of the dog and learn how you own human body language and reactions often misrepresent your own canine communication attempts.

You will also learn the best dog training methods and how to diagnose classic basic behavioural problems and put in place steps for behaviour modification plus have a good understanding of aggression in dogs.

Good read overall

I have listened to a lot of sciencebased audiobooks about canine behavior and I think this (short) book covers everything pretty well. The only thing that wasn’t really explained well was the negative reinforcement. It’s not about adding something to unlearn unwanted behavior like a prong collar. It’s about taking away something uncomfortable or otherwise unpleasant in response to a stimulus.

just wish there was one

was a great introduction but there are no courses that actually cover everything from start to finish just brushing lightly on subjects. I'd love something that shows you the research and goes into depth about both sides of the argument for both positive and negative and what to do if the initial method fails which it has done many times. as a qualified trainer I've always employed the positive only techniques but I know that for some dogs out there slight negative reinforcement is the only thing that has worked e.g light lead corrections not prong collars! I'd love a course that teaches you both sides and explains about using it safely and not abusively. research states positive reinforcement is best for humans too but if your kid punched another one at school you wouldn't stay quiet and reward them every day they don't punch a kid.
