Animal Behavior College?

From your experience, should I take more than one course? I really want formal education in basic obedience and solving problem behaviors, and en education on behavioral science as well.

Animal Behavior College?

Reading the second one now...I really like that first one. I've tried so hard to explain to people that dogs don't look at us as "pack leaders" and never knew how to word it or even explain the science behind it. Now, is it saying that domestic dogs don't form hierarchies between one anoth...

Animal Behavior College?

Thanks for the input! I personally LOVE NILF. Haha, it worked great for me. I guess I just need to find my niche...I'm basically just looking for something to certify me in basic obedience and problem behaviors, and then I will further my education in behavior with someone different. But, if ABC is ...

Animal Behavior College?

That school you linked looks great! I have been looking for something more behavior oriented as a second course (instead of focused solely on training) since the only physical school in my area that offers a Behavioral Science degree is WAY out of my price range.

Animal Behavior College?

Really? I'm surprised that they have dominance theory coming from there, because ABC says this about their training technique: From there, ABC Students learn how to become a dog trainer by teaching dogs new behaviors through luring, shaping, capturing or molding. ABC's Training Philosophy follows th...

Animal Behavior College?

Any thoughts? Anyone taken classes with them? I am thinking of taking two or maybe all three of the courses they offer, but mainly just the Certified Dog Trainer course. What do you guys think of this school and the way they teach and the trainers they produce? Will I really be a fully certified tra...

Two dogs playing... too rough?

How long have you been fostering the pup? Any new dog entering the home should be going through the 2 week shutdown and not interacting with the resident dog until after that time, and only in small doses until you get a feel of it. Sent from my HTC using Tapatalk Even a puppy? Seems a bit extreme....

help with pulling dog

Of course there are dogs who aren't negatively affected by prongs, but the percentage of dogs who could be is a lot higher then with some other training methods, why take the risk?

help with pulling dog

I am going to post this quote made by another person on another discussion similar to this one, and just see what you guys think: I am a positive reinforcement based trainer and to be honest I DESPISE the term purely positive. If anyone was truly purely positive, never once verbally corrected their ...

Recall, Kirkland and Taste of the Wild

Don't know what to think of that, since I have also seen several nutritionist opinions to the contrary...but, I'm going to try both for my elderly dog and see what she does best on.
