Understanding Canine Aggression
Kellie Snider will be joining Dog Talk host, Michelle Huntting, to help us better understand canine aggression. If you are a dog trainer, pet owner, or shelter staff you won't want to miss this broadcast as Kellie shares science based explanation.
Kellie Snider, MS is the Manager of Animal Behavior Programs (ABP) at the SPCA of Texas which has two animal shelters and 3 wellness clinics in the DFW area. Kellie designed and developed their Animal Behavior Programs Department which encompasses behavior evaluations, behavior assessments, and obedience training. She designed and continually updates the monthly staff and volunteer trainings for animal handling, restraint, socialization, enrichment, canine assessments and canine obedience. Before coming to the SPCA of Texas, she conducted the Constructional Aggression Treatment (CAT) research on understanding canine aggression as operant behavior under the direction of Dr. Jesús Rosales-Ruiz at the University of North Texas and conducted seminars for animal behaviorists and trainers on the procedure across the US, in Canada and in England. Kellie began working with animals in about 1998 and has conducted presentations about animal behavior at academic symposia, professional seminars, workshops and classes since 2002. Kellie is an artist in her spare time, working in fiber (rug hooking), markers, inks and watercolor. A life-long animal lover, Kellie shares her Texas home with four cats, two dogs, two sons and a husband … not necessarily in that order. Kellie instructs courses at Kenyon Canine Institute: Canine Behavior Science I, Canine Behavior Science II, and Canine Behavior Modification Science.
Dog Bite Victims
Julie Forbes and Tracy Ross discuss dog aggression, and it's different subcategories and causes. "Aggression" is a broad statement and is too large of a topic to just generalize. It is important to understand the nature of dog aggression, and it's different forms and reasons.
Twelve years ago, Tracy was one of the main people Julie learned from, on how to work with dog behavior, particularly aggression. Tracy works with some of the most difficult dogs in the region, and is incredible at breaking through to dogs who don't seem reachable.
The libertarian musings of Paul & Tim. Tonight we will be talking more about Ferguson, including the unrelated shooting in St. Louis, and how it effects the SWAT lobby. We will then be discussing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Is it narcissism disguised as charity. We will then give you our heroes and morons.
In today's podcast Laura Mize, pediatric speech-language pathologist and author of www.teachmetotalk.com will be speaking with Maria Del Duca, speech-language pathologist, from www.communicationstationspeech.com about a great post she wrote on toddler aggression. Guess what... some negativity with others, whether it be peers, siblings, and even parents, is totally expected in this developmental period. We'll be looking at what's considered "normal" and we'll also discuss the red flags that tell us a toddler's behaviors are outside the realm of what's expected. We'll also discuss tips for handling aggressive behaviors for parents and for therapist. I hope you'll join us!!
