It’s hard to get a good grasp on the big picture of behavior problems when we are working with a small proportion of the population. This interactive webinar takes an in-depth look at behavior problems in dogs. Populations change over time – we'll cover the most up-to-date information we have on this topic!

We will cover a lot of ground in this talk. Including: Which behavior issues are most prevalent? What role does the dog’s sex, spay/neuter status, age, and origin play? What factors might be driving behavior issues in dogs? Which behavior issues tend to co-occur?

Use this information to serve your client’s better by focusing on what’s most important for them and their dogs. These research findings will allow you to design training and behavior programs that are proactive about prevention and early intervention and as effective as possible!

Learning Objectives:

  • List the most recent information we have on the demographics of behavior problems in dogs (for example, what impact does spay/neuter have on the prevalence of behavior issues?)
  • Identify which behavior problems tend to co-occur
  • Explain which behavior issues are most prevalent
  • Apply this information to prevention, early intervention and modification of behavior issues in dogs
