Working with Different Breed Types

For hundreds of years, humans have consciously selected dogs for their particular talents - whether it be herding, protection, war or catching varmints.  Because of this, our dogs look quite different, and often act more like different species than types of the same species.   In this class, we delve into some of the differences between dogs behavior and what they were bred to do.

In his paper, Understanding the Dog, John Fisher discusses the fact that there are often as many differences between breeds as there are similarities. 


Here is the pdf of the Powerpoint for this Class.  As always, it's a guide, not an absolute!
