Author: 
Ian Dunbar

In this DVD lecture, veterinarian and animal behaviorist Dr. Ian Dunbar addresses one of the most worrying behavior problems any dog owner can face — dogs that bite. Dealing effectively with canine aggression necessitates a comprehensive understanding of its underlying causes. In his characteristically entertaining and enlightening style, Dr. Dunbar offers a thoughtful analysis of why dogs bite, outlining numerous common-sense preventative measures and a variety of practical remedial training techniques. Topics include: The relative influence of nature (genetics) and nurture (learning) on the development of canine aggression. An in-depth review of the many stimuli and situations that may provoke a dog to bite. How to recognize warning signs and how to defuse potential triggers. A comprehensive classification of dog bites on the basis of severity and owner’s responsibility. A suggestion for fairer, more effective legal sanctions. A detailed program of simple and effective behavior modification and temperament training techniques to prevent dog bites.
