Personality is all about individual differences in dogs and can help explain why some dogs react to life so differently than others. How is personality measured? What personality traits have been found in dogs? How consistent is personality over time? And how does all of this help you when working with dogs? We’ll explore all of these questions and more in this one-hour webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define personality and explain why it's important for training and behavior
  • Summarize what is known about personality in dogs
  • Describe how consistent personality traits such as aggression are over time
  • Apply this information to training and behavior work
