Day 4 - Behaviour Programs for Dog Professionals

The world of dog husbandry and training is in dire need of another quantum leap! The time is long overdue for all dog professions (breeders, veterinarians, pet store retailers, trainers and shelters/rescues) to utterly re-evaluate and re-focus their practices and to champion a combined focus on educating prospective and new puppy owners vis a vis puppy raising, so that puppies stay in their original homes instead of being surrendered to shelters as adolescents. So believes Ian Dunbar.  In this seminar, he shares his vision of the future where dog professionals take collective responsibility for creating a happier relationship between dogs and their owners.

This 1-day lecture is aimed at dog professionals but may also be of interest to pet dog owners.
