Learn to Talk Dog - Programme Two, Dog-to-Dog Communication
This course is in three easy-to-follow modules:
1. Meetings, greetings, stalking splitting
2. Play, Sex and Conflict
3. Predicting dog to dog aggression
OK, admit it – you are just as addicted to dog watching as I am! If that’s true, then I’m sure that - like me - you will be particularly fascinated by observing how dogs interact together – because although they can’t tell us exactly what’s going on, there are times when it’s obvious what may happen between them – and other times when it can take you completely by surprise.
Whether it’s dogs meeting and greeting, playing with each other, or behaving in a way which is less than sociable, the fact is that we owe it to our dogs to study how they communicate with each other – in order to prevent problems from occurring, help those dogs that already have issues around other dogs, and keep them safe when out and about. If you are an exceptional owner, a trainer or instructor, a member of veterinary staff, behaviour specialist, welfare professional or volunteer – or just have a fascination with dogs - you will benefit from this comprehensive course – bringing to life the hidden language of dogs.
This course is structured in three easy-to-follow Modules. I take you step-by-step through canine meeting and greetings, canine play, sex and conflict, and predicting dog-to-dog aggression.
Each module includes tons of video material (really – over 90 clips!) as well as written content, which you can study completely at your own pace. On this course you will discover:
My new thoughts and theories on many aspects of dog-to-dog interactions – even the controversial ones! I don’t hold back!
The subtle secrets of dog-to-dog body language that I explain only in Advanced Masterclasses
Up-skill and update your behavioural knowledge with brand new theories and information
Understand what can lead to dog-to-dog aggression problems so you can advise and prevent it
Understand the predictors of aggression, so you can intervene before they happen
