CE Event Information

  • Description:
    When it comes to animal behavior everything you think you know just might be wrong, and certain belief systems and myths regarding dog behavior can be dangerous for both animals and people.

    Some dog breeds are stubborn or more confident than others. Do our training methods with these dogs need to be more rigid or heavy-handed? In this segment Dr. E'Lise Christensen addresses the myth that some dog breeds need heavy-handed techniques to ensure training success and the problems with this mindset or approach.
