As part of a larger initiative to educate pet parents on how to have the healthiest and happiest dogs and promote the importance of responsible dog parenting, The Dogington Post and Merrick Pet Care teamed up to create “Merrick Pet Care’s Dogington University,” a series of eight live seminars presented by top dog trainers from around the world, which began April 15 and continues daily until April 24. A full schedule is available at http://dogingtonpost.com.
On Friday, April 19 at 4:00PM EST, well-known and well-respected dog trainer Dr. Ian Dunbar will present a live one-hour seminar to readers and fans of the Dogington Post.
Veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and dog trainer, Dr. Ian Dunbar received his veterinary degree and a Special Honors degree in Physiology & Biochemistry from the Royal Veterinary College (London University) plus a doctorate in animal behavior from the Psychology Department at UC Berkeley, where he researched olfactory preferences and the development of aggression in domestic dogs.
Dr. Dunbar has authored numerous books and DVDs about puppy/dog behavior and training, including How To Teach A New Dog Old Tricks and the SIRIUS® Puppy Training video. He created the world’s first off-leasy puppy classes and is the founder of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.
