In this webinar we will look at the Origin of the Dog with a look at the science behind more recent thinking of how dogs became domesticated and subsequently man’s best friend. Which as you will see, when the evidence is looked at logically it points to a more reasonable explanation of the domestication of dogs and helps us to better understand how we can use this knowledge in Training and Behaviour Modification.
This webinar will be presented by Mike Jones who is a Trainer and Behaviourist Based in the Midlands. Mike is a member of the British Veterinary Behavioural Association, a Full member of the Institute for Animal care Education, a Professional member of the Pet Professional Guild and a Member of the Society for Companion Animal Studies.
Mike's special area of interest is Pariah Dogs and Live Stock Guarding breeds as these dogs gives a good insight into how early dogs evolved and became domesticated.
He also is the resident Behaviour advisor for two charities, K9 Search UK which helps reunite lost pets with owners as well as find homes for long and short term shelter dogs and also for the charity NOWZAD which helps re-home stray dogs in Afghanistan.
