CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Although previous studies have shown associations between human personality and the prevalence of their dogs' behavior problems, the mechanisms for this have not been determined. There have also been studies that have detected links between aversive training techniques and behavior problems.

    In this Specialty Update renowned veterinary behavior expert Dr. Nicholas Dodman discusses findings from a recently published study that sought to examine these issues further. Discussion includes information that pet care professionals and pet owners should consider when dealing with dogs with problem behaviors.
