More Info

Are you as interested in what your dog is thinking as you are in how to train him? If so, you’ll love this seminar that explains who dogs are, and why they do what they do, from an entirely new perspective. From the comfort of your own couch, let Patricia guide you through current research on “all things dog,” from why some female dogs lift their legs (it’s all their brother’s fault!) to the ability of the general public to interpret dog expressions.

Through slides, videos and lecture, you’ll develop an enhanced understanding of the influence of genetics and development on behavior, along with new discoveries about play behavior, social behavior and canine cognition.

Who Should Buy

Dog Owners
Any one who is fascinated by their dog’s behavior will enjoy hearing about what the last ten years of research has taught us about dogs. If you’d like to learn more about why your female dog lifts her leg, or why your brother-in-law doesn’t notice when his dog is frightened, this DVD is for you. Get a copy, invite your dog loving friends over and settle back!

Want to keep up in your field but can’t afford to subscribe to 15 different journals on behavior? Let Patricia summarize some of the most interesting and relevant research on canine behavior—always with a practical twist—in what’s been called one of Patricia’s best seminars ever.

Veterinarians/Veterinary Technicians
Keeping up in the field of medicine is hard enough, but staying current in both medicine and behavior (including genetics, early development, learning, play, social relationships, training methodologies and more!) is downright impossible. Patricia spent months researching the field of behavior for important and relevant studies that have practical applications for dog owners and those in the health care field. You can stay current just by purchasing this one day seminar for you and your staff–sort of the PubMed of behavior!
