Raising Canine

Motor Patterns, Drives, Instincts, & Fixed Action Patterns: Important considerations when choosing and training a dog

Course Information:

Certain responses are due to learning and others are based on heredity. Knowing what they are and how they affect the dog are a very important part of understanding why certain breeds behave the way they do. They are also a key element for trainers to better understand whether a behavior is modifiable at all. Severely punishing these innate behaviors can have serious consequences on the dog’s well being. This session discusses what these behaviors are and how they affect our dogs’ lives with humans.
