1.13 - Animal Behavior in the Home

When I first started teaching off-leash puppy socialization and training classes over 25 years ago, I had recently left Academics at the Psychology Department in Berkeley, California. Many of the Psychology professors were my friends and many brought their new pups to puppy class. As the word spread, many more came simply to observe the classes. Most had the same reaction, that they had never before seen applied psychology quite this way before — in the raw. The interactions between people and dogs were interesting and provided many wonderful examples of good dog training techniques. However, the family dynamics were an observer’s gold mine and provided many examples of not-so-good people-training techniques.
