Behaviorism is one helpful leg to stand on.

But if you want to support the whole dog, it helps to rely on other sciences, as well. In this webinar, dog trainer and ethology enthusiast Kim Brophey shares how some of the current problems in the dog training and behavior profession have resulted from a rigid interpretation of behaviorism. Insisting on seeing animals through a single lens fosters an unnecessary separation from (and even delegitimization of) some of the other natural sciences, like ethology.

This common disconnect can have profound implications for the dogs and families served by professionals if certain critical elements of behavior are accidentally ignored in assessment and practice in the interest of strict adherence to the singular lens of behaviorism.

Join Kim as she introduces us to the natural intersection between behaviorism and ethology as it relates to dog training and consulting in the modern age.
