A practical look at understanding, managing, modifying and preventing aggressive behaviour in dogs. This weekend seminar explores aggressive behaviour towards people and other dogs focusing on re-considering labelling aggression, considering behaviour at an emotional level, useful tools in behaviour counselling and practical ideas for managing and modifying the aggressive behaviour.
Chirag will also discuss puppies and puppy training looking at spotting early signs and educating to minimise possible aggression problems in later life.
