Sydney Animal Behaviour Service - Links
Seaforth Veterinary Hospital is where most consultations occur. It is the provider of high level veterinary care for animals, 365 days a year.
The Society's mission is to promote and facilitate positive interaction between people and companion animals. Currently it pursues this mission through four core projects:
the Certificate IV in Companion Animal Services - Canine Good Citizen™ education programs;
the Delta Dog Safe Program;
the Delta Therapy Dogs program and;
the Delta Classroom Canines program.
The aim of this web-site is to provide the media and members of the public with more information about the behaviour of dogs, the possible consequences of using aversive training techniques, and where to go for appropriate advice on training and behaviour issues.
This is an article that ia written by Stanley Coren, Ph.D., F.R.S.C., who is a professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia, showing that the use of punishment during training leads to an increase in agression in dogs.
