In order for trainers/consultants to successfully address the client question, “What’s wrong with my dog?” they must first be able to proficiently examine considerations about what is wrong with a dog’s “world”. His behavior is inseparable from his environment, and will reflect the level of compatibility between his genetic design and his “world”. The scientific basis for behavioral dysfunction, as well as proposed solutions, will be discussed.
