Motor Patterns and Their Influence on Breed Specific Behavior Problems

Presented by: Ken McCort


Wild canines have genetically produced sequential behavior patterns that are necessary for survival, and our domestic dogs have fragments of these behaviors. When put in the wrong context, these behaviors can be problematic.

About The Presenter (BIO)

Ken McCort, owner and operator of Four Paws training in Doylestown, Ohio, works with people who have animals in need of training and behavior modification. Established in 1987, Ken has been working primarily with dogs, cats and birds. Most clients are referred by their veterinarians or by other clients. Because he often works with more serious behavior concerns, all clients and their animals are seen on an individual basis, he does not offer group training classes.

Most behavior problems people have with their pets are based on relationship problems as well as miscommunication. That is why Ken works with his clients as well as their animals to effect behavioral changes. If other animals are needed to help with the treatment strategy, Ken and his wife Marilyn, a veterinarian, have a variety of animals of different of species he can use with the client’s animal. Most of Ken and Marilyn’s animals once had behavior concerns themselves when they were adopted.

Working with many species, both domesticated and wild, Ken uses training techniques that are not based on threats, intimidation and/or pain. Animals are trained to trust and defer to the owner/handler. Many of his clients have already been through some other training programs before they were referred to him.

In addition to animals with behavior concerns, Ken is also involved in Animal Assisted Activity and Therapy programs. As a Delta Society Pet Partner evaluator and evaluator instructor, Ken has helped numerous hospitals, nursing homes and school based programs, as well as other institutions, to develop programs utilizing animals as a modality for treatment and activities. Children’s Hospital Medical Center in Akron, Ohio has had a program called the Doggie Brigade that has been ongoing since 1992 and Ken had been involved in evaluating the teams and operating the program since its inception.

As a lecturer and educator, Ken has given presentations all over the United States. In addition, he is a frequent speaker in Japan and has taught in Taiwan as well. Many prestigious groups, including the Midwest Veterinary Conference, Tufts University Animal Expo, the Delta Society’s national conferences, several dog breed clubs, veterinary technicians’ groups and the University of Akron have and still do use Ken as a lecturer and educator.

Besides domestic canids, Ken has had a long relationship with Wolf Park in Battle Ground, Indiana. This education and research facility utilizes Ken to help train with their wolves and coyotes to aid in husbandry and testing for cognitive research. For many years, Ken has offered an annual seminar at Wolf Park on dog and wolf behavior.
