Behaviour Bible : Chapter 1 : Verse 5

Understanding dog behaviour without understanding what literally makes a dog and how they work is like trying to be a mechanic without understanding the engine of a car. We are not vets but that is no excuse not to understand the inner workings of the animals we seek to help.

Essentially by now you should understand the vital role of domestication in changing the dogs physiology, the genetic underpinning which creates each dog differently, the role of the environment in developing the dog as well as the biology and mechanics of the central nervous system. Those things form this walking, barking, eating and thinking being and understanding how a dog logistically does anything at all will have an overarching impact on how you work with the beings in front of you.

The deep dive in this course looks into neutering and you will leave the course able to more confidently assess when neutering will help and when it might hinder a behaviour problem. We take a look at the implications chemical castration has on behaviour along with how the age of neutering may affect behaviour.

On top of that, as ever, is a dramatic case study to ensure you are learning how to apply the knowledge to real life. We track the journey of Turbo the puppy who entered the rescue almost unable to stand as we take her through X-rays, MRI scans and lumbar punctures to find out how the vets work out what is wrong with her.

The outline of this course includes and exploration into the following systems:

  • Integument system
  • Muscular system
  • Skeletal system
  • Senses organs
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Respiratory system
  • Digestive system
  • Reproductive system
