I also started assisting with dog training classes at Canine Fine in April
Additionally, this semester in the Anthrozoology graduate program, I took courses entitled "Issues in Animal Behavior" and "Animal Welfare." While the animal behavior class focused on wild animal behavior and conservation, I found my animal welfare class to really shift my perspective on companion animals. Due to my recent endeavors whilst taking this class, I chose to write my final paper on how dog training methods affect canine welfare. I am really pleased with how it turned out, so I have shared it below. Please let me know any questions and comments you may have. I am so excited about the path I'm on and plan to utilize my growing knowledge in the work I do for Heal to Howl.
