September 2023 webinar topic:

How do auditory distractions impact learning in dogs?

Training isn’t terribly helpful in the real world unless we train dogs to ignore distractions. However, there hasn’t been any research on how to do that, or exactly how distractions impact learning in dogs. Until now! This month’s webinar will discuss a recent study on the effects of auditory distractions on learning and later performance.

Curiosity piqued?
