When dogs physical go after other animals, many people just call it "aggression" and even call certain types of attacks "predatory aggression". Predatory behaviors and aggressive interactions are not the same thing. They involve different motivations and different strategies to try and reconcile them. This session will examine these behavioral responses, teach attendees how to differentiate between the two categories of behavior and to become more effective at resolving problems related to them.
Learning Objectives: 1. Assess canine cognition and current research 2. Assess how canine cognition has affected what we understand about dogs. 3. Identify how types of cognition these can apply to training.
