You’re a dog geek like me

You can’t get enough learning about dogs, dog training, & behavior. You don’t just live and breathe dogs, you read and watch and learn dogs.

You don’t have time to read research papers

You want to know all the cool new stuff but don’t want to have to battle your way through academic writing to get to the good bits.

A Year in Review: Updates on research presented in previous Research Bites webinars

Complex cognition in dogs – can they generalized concepts?

CEUs available from CCPDT and IAABC for all webinars.

How it works

I read lots of research papers, so you don’t have to

I keep my eye on all the latest work on training and treatment methods, learning, stress, fear and anxiety, aggression, cognition, and more—all the cool stuff!

Once a month you join me for a webinar

I’ll tell you about a paper I think you’ll find fascinating. I’ll break it down:

  • All the best bits, including surprises, results & conclusions
  • What the results mean, and how you can put them to use to train dogs & modify behavior
  • How the study was designed, and any weaknesses or limitations you should know about
  • What questions the paper raised for future study or the work we do with dogs

We’ll chat about it, brainstorm applications together, answer your questions, geek out. 

You stay science smart & at the top of your game

You get all the bragging rights that come with knowing all the latest, get to hang out with fellow R+ trainers who share your passion, and hone your science and critical thinking skills.

Plus you ride the cutting edge of not just science, but its application to your work as a dog trainer or behavior consultant—making you the best at what you do.
