Show Notes

Dog training advice can seem like some kind of formula - apply this solution for this problem and if it doesn't work, you did something wrong (or identified the wrong problem). Join us with Brian Fleming to discuss how chaos theory can be used to broaden your understanding of behavior and modifying behavior. Behavior is complex, and situations with a complex environment or many relationships within the home do not lend themselves well to a reductionist approach. 

Brian Fleming is a dog behavior consultant and Licensed Family Dog Mediator out of Connecticut, he specializes in complex cases and is the author of the Chaos & Canines blog and co-host of The Canine Complexity Podcast
