NOTES

Description
Living and Learning with Animals (LLA) is a seminar focused on the fundamental principles of learning and behavior, and the behavior change technology known as applied behavior analysis. All animals change their behavior due to experience, i.e., they learn, which gives this course trans-species and interdisciplinary relevance to all professionals working with behavior.

Topics are presented with slides and illustrative videos and include the following:

- How Behavior Works: Understanding and Misunderstanding Behavior
- The Significance of Science to Behavior Consulting
- Respondent and Operant Learning
- Functional Assessment
- The Commitment to Ethical Practice
- The Case for Empowerment
- Procedures for Changing Respondent Behavior
- Procedures for Changing Operant Behavior
- Designing Behavior Change Plans

As a result of attending this seminar, participants will be better able to teach learners effectively and humanely.

NOTES

Description
Canine aggression is a commonly misunderstood behaviour in the dog world. Join Pat Miller, CBCC-KA, CPDT-KA, and the Cochrane & Area Humane Society for a two day seminar learning about dog aggression. Dogs who bite are a risk to families, visitors, and the community at large. They are also a risk to themselves, as dogs with aggressive behaviours all too often end up in the euthanasia room. This two-day seminar will explore the causes of aggression, examine the different types of aggression, and debunk some of the common myths. There is plenty of opportunity built into the schedule for questions and discussion, and Day 2 includes analysis of actual case histories and outcomes. The seminar will also address a variety of behavior modification techniques, and provide attendees with tools and information to help them understand and work with dogs who have aggression challenges.
