Stanley Coren. Dogs are invented creatures -- invented by humans, who have been shaping the lives of these four-legged companions for more than 14, years. However, we often forget that, just as dogs live in our world, we live in theirs.

A fascinating treasure trove of information gleaned from science, folklore, religious writing, tradition, and politics, The Modern Dog explores not only how dogs behave, but also how we share our lives with our dogs. Much more a romp than a formal exposition, The Modern Dog 's profiles and tales are funny, sweet, quirky, and reveal a lot about both species and our centuries-long partnership.

Dog training is unlicensed and unregulated, without consumer protection, standards of care or minimum educational requirements. This webinar will propose that there is not much of a box to think out of in dog training.
There are no standard operating procedures for teaching basic obedience, no standardized protocols for resolving common behavior problems such as house-soiling, barking, fear and aggression, no referral thresholds, no diagnostic criteria, no specific consumer protection in the event of gross misconduct or incompetence. This Wild West make-up-your-own-method has resulted in pushes by better developed professions, such as veterinarians, to remove the rights of dog trainers to do any diagnostic work or behavior modification.
However, given the scarcity of credentialed veterinary behaviorists, the time and educational constraints of general practice veterinarians, and the massive demand for behavior services, properly trained dog trainers can be the cornerstone of the solution.
