Brave New World

Presented by: Roger Abrantes

DVD- 3 disc set

No matter what type of work you do involving dogs, understanding the basics of learning theory is the foundation for being a great teacher for both dogs and people. Once you understand these basics, your ability to understand, utilize and develop behavior modification protocols will be greatly enhanced. This lecture provides a strong foundation: positive & negative reinforcers, stimulus discrimination, teasing and backchaining.

It seems like every day new tools, techniques, and gizmos are popping up for dog professionals to consider, not to mention new approaches to using the tools they already have. This lecture will educate participants on which are harmful or just plain silly, illustrating with live demonstrations.

I give it a meh Review by Jennifer
His videos are pretty good if you are a newbie to the language of dog training but he tends to over explain things and has kind of a monotone voice which makes it a little hard to pay attention. There is also some visual problems and some audio problems as well which is very unfortunate.

There are some good definitions and some good video examples of some different tricks but really this could have probably all have been put on one disc instead of 3. (Posted on 5/6/14)

About The Presenter (BIO)

Roger Abrantes, PhD in Evolutionary Biology and Ethology, and BA in Philosophy, DHC, DF, MAPBC, born in Portugal in 1951, has lived most of his life in Denmark.

He is the author to 17 books in English, German, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Italian, and Czech, and numerous articles on behavior. He is probably one of the most versatile ethologists in the world. His work ranges from lecturing at the Ethology Institute, where he is the divisional director, to appearances as guest lecturer in universities world wide, popular talks, treatment of behavior problems, teaching canine and human behavior to police officers, training rats to detect landmines in Tanzania, and performing marine environmental management duties (he is also a certified Divemaster and Rescue Diver).

He has written popular books with sound advice to pet owners as well as theoretical scientific dissertations. He teaches ethology, anthropology, and epistemology (theory of knowledge), besides his practical work with dogs, horses cats, rats, and diving missions.

He is a popular guest in TV and radio programs in his home countries and in the US.

His English books 'Dog Languageā€“An Encyclopedia of Canine Behavior' and 'The Evolution Of Canine Social Behavior' became hits the moment they reached the US bookshelves. He lectures often in the US.

Dr. Abrantes is especially known for his views on social behavior and its applications to the daily understanding of pet behavior; and for his no-nonsense working methods, a practical and thorough application of Ethology and Learning Theory, teaching the animal the new patterns patiently and efficiently step by step.

His actual work involves research into the philosophical aspects of evolutionary biology (besides being committed to the Tanzania project and his diving commitments).

Roger Abrantes is truly a citizen of the world. If you ask him where he lives, he will answer you 'Planet Earth' and there's something about it. He lives in Cambridge, UK, Lisbon, Portugal, Morogoro, Tanzania, and on an island, which name he refuses to reveal, in the south of Thailand. He speaks nine languages, English, Portuguese, French, Danish, and Swedish (fluently), Spanish, Italian, German, and Thai (less fluently).

He is a keen sportsman, having raced cars for many years. He has also played roller hockey in the German Bundesliga where he was his team's first goal-keeper until a few years ago. Nowadays he runs 10 ks and, when he's not working, he dedicates himself to his two life-long passions: reading (everything) and listening to music (Blues, Rock, New-Age, Opera).
