Behaviour Bible : Chapter 1 (Verses 1-7)

Verses 1 - 7

In the first chapter of The Behaviour Bible we will uncover the seven lenses necessary to understand the whole dog including taking a deep dive into domestication and evolution, genetics, neurobiology, endocrinology, physiology, cognition and emotion and sociology.

The dog is an orchestra and understanding the sounds he creates within behaviour is only possible by uncovering each instrument. Understanding the various ways to look at dogs in full will enable practitioners to choose which lens is most relevant and going to lead to the most accurate assessment and the most effective methodology.

Each verse within the chapter includes a full length video lecture (“lectumentary”), a particularly deep dive into a relevant part of the theory as well as an additional guest slots which focuses on application. The course material has been coedited and externally verified by experts within their field. Rather than use the eyes of another dog trainer we felt it was important to get real experts in the niche areas we cover to check everything.

The chapter is bought for life, whilst designed to be taken at realistic pace (alongside life, work, dogs and kids) over seven months - if you take your foot off the pedal then there is no drama as you’ve got the course for life.

Domestication & Evolution: understand how dogs entered the world and the processes by which they continue to develop at a species level.

Genetics: understand who dogs are on a genetic level; working through what influence the code our dogs are born with, has on who they are.

Neurobiology: understand the canine brain and how it’s related to canine behaviour and learning.

Endocrinology: understand how hormones and neurotransmitters work to impact our dogs behaviour and visa versa .

Physiology: understand the physical structure and system that makes our dogs and how it impacts our dogs both when it works perfectly and when it fails.

Cognition and Emotion: understand the inner workings of our dogs decision making and emotional being and how our current understand of their private experiences and ideas impacts our life with them.

Sociology: understand the way our dogs communicate with one another and how their society functions as well as the impact that has on how we assess and work with them.

Never before has understanding the in depth theoretical intricacies, learning the practical skills and getting to grips with the logistics of challenging dog behaviour cases been so easy.
