Lecture at Asheville-Buncombe Technical College
This Friday, 20 October 2017, Dr. K will discuss science-based dog training approaches. Being a science-based approach is a claim of many dog training philosophies. However, exactly which science ? Is the training approach based solely on psychology and learning behavior? What about biology? What about physics?
The Dog’s Perspective is the dog training philosophy of Lucky Dog Training Asheville. It is a canine version of Positive Discipline, a very popular model used in rearing and schooling children. The Dog’s Perspective is based not only on psychology and learning behavior, but incorporates scientific findings in dog and wolf biology, including neurobiology and play behavior.
If you are interested in learning more, please come to the noon STEM Friday lecture in the Ferguson Auditorium on the Asheville-Buncombe Technical College main Asheville campus this Friday, 20 October. Looking forward to sharing old and new research in dog and wolf biology and their applications to dog training.
Kathryn R. Gubista, PhD is an evolutionary biologist, college biology instructor, former zookeeper, author and certified professional dog trainer with Lucky Dog Training Asheville and has over 30 years of dog training and human teaching experience. The Dog’s Perspective is a training philosophy based on how dogs think, the title of the book series and our blog.
