Ethically and effectively working cases as a canine behavior professional requires us to perform both
initial and ongoing comprehensive analysis of all contributing elements to a dog’s behaviour.


In the first part of this  webinar, participants are introduced to Kim Brophey’s widely celebrated and endorsed L.E.G.S.® system of Applied Ethology as a simple and practical framework for doing so - bridging multiple scientific disciplines and delivering new depths of understanding by organizing the critical components of all animal behaviour.


Learn how to identify, understand, and integrate the full scope of potential factors influencing behaviour - Learned, Environmental, Genetic, and unique internal conditions of the individual animal’s own Self – in order to prevent misunderstandings and incorrect assessment of cases, obstacles to the progress of behavior modification, inadequate safety and management provisions, and even life-threatening circumstances for both animals and people.
