Standard: $20.00

Description

Social learning means acquiring new behaviors from the observation of others. Dogs are predisposed to learn socially form humans. During this talk I will describe the results of the most recent scientific research on the use of social learning in the applied field of dog training with the Do as I Do method. This is a training method based on dog's social cognitive skills, particularly on his imitative ability.
