Behaviour Bible : Chapter 1 : Verse 3
This verse is the first of two that focuses on the brain. Setting the stage for understanding why neuroscience, affective neuroscience and behavioural neuroscience has hit the big time in the canine industry in the last 10 years. This lens looks at the biology of the brain and helps practitioners to understand what the canine brain looks like, where different sort of action takes place as well as what we can do to enhance brain development.
It wouldn’t be a Behaviour Bible verse if it didn’t come with some additional treats. In this course we have the additional pleasure of an interview with Fair Vassoler a PHD neuroscientist from Tufts university as well as a unique delve into world of MRI scans: is neuroimaging really the best way to understand the mind of our canine partners?
This course covers:
- Brain Anatomy
- A review of the hemisphere
- Brain Makeup
- Neurological systems
- How learning happens and what we can do to encourage it
- How this applies to the dogs in your care
- A deep dive into MRI scanning
- An in depth interview with an expert canine neuroscientist
Nando, Jo and Dean make up the team that run The School of Canine Science, an education provider that teaches, trains and mentors dog trainers to reach their potential in a competitive industry.
All of our courses, either in person or online are firmly rooted in science and evidence with strong practical hand on elements.
Nando : has been working as a dog trainer and instructor for 14 years. Best known for his accessible style, impressive YouTube tutorials, big personality and awe-inspiring ability to train the tricky dogs that many people claim are un-trainable. Nando has appeared on multiple mainstream TV shows, presented around the world, authored books, hosted his own international radio show, receivied more than 20 million views on YouTube and has a Facebook following of over 26,000. Nando loves all areas of dog training but his true passion lies in scent detection.
Jo-Rosie : is an animal behaviourist with a degree in applied psychology and a post graduate in behaviour. Jo initially worked for a large rescue organisation before moving to a private behaviour clinic where she spent her time mainly working with section 1 and 3 dangerous dogs, resulting in her becoming an independent expert witness. Alongside a success career as a TV presenter jo has authored a number of books including the popular ‘The Real Dog Yoga’. Jo-Rosie also headed up the behaviour qualifications for the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers lecturing both in the UK and Internationally and writing the level OCN assessment process for behaviourists.
Dean : is a dog trainer with less than three years formal experience yet in that time he has managed to propel himself into the forefront of the industry with his intense theoretical knowledge and an masterful eye for precision. After completing a Masters Degree in Business and working for 16 years in the Technology Industry Dean is obsessed with systems, processes and measurement – leading to an eye for detail and an aptitude for clean, efficient training. Dean has worked behind the scenes on TV shows animal training but is probably best known for tricks & tutorials with his dog Sidney.
