Certificate in Animal Behaviour - Companion Animal Behaviour ANSC 2003   Companion Animal Behaviour
CREDIT HOURS: 3
In this course, students will study the fundamentals of animal learning and how those principles affect success in training and behaviour modification. Attention will be given to understanding and solving behaviour problems (e.g., separation anxiety, dominance aggression, fighting, inappropriate urination, and behavioural stereotypies). The focus is on companion animals – dogs and cats, and to some extent horses. The normal development of behaviour in those species will be covered.
