Tawzer Dog | For the Love of a Dog

For the Love of a Dog

Video Description:

Ever looked at your dog and wondered how much of her emotional life is like your own? This seminar explores the biology of emotion in people and dogs, combining slides, videos and hands-on work with demonstration dogs.

You'll learn what emotions really are, and how much of primal emotions like happiness, fear and anger are shared by you and your dog. This day-long seminar looks at both the differences and similarities of emotions in dogs and people, and includes solutions to problems motivated by fear and anger. The day ends with an in-depth examination of why we love dogs as much as we do, and celebrates the bond between us and our four-footed friends. This video is a perfect companion for Patricia's book by the same name.
