Is it medical, behavioral, or both?
Chris presents an overview of medical factors with the potential to cause or contribute to aggression and other behavior patterns.
Precursors in aggression cases!

Behavior modification in aggression cases.
A unique opportunity to see how Michael approaches modifying aggressive behaviors in dogs.
Navigating the world of behavior meds as a trainer or behavior consultant.
