About This File

Tamzin Furtado's presentation from the 4th International Dog Health Workshop considers how human behaviours affect welfare.

"There are good reasons why we should better understand human behaviour:

  • It’s the root cause of most welfare issues– people doing, or not doing, certain care, management or training practices.
  • It can help campaigns and work with clients (vets, trainers) to improve compliance, rapport and efficiency.
  • We are used to considering animal behaviour, what about the human animal?"

Thank you for thought about being a responsible owner! How old was the owner of the Pug? When it's about dogs, age makes some human animals highly resistant to  any new  ways of implementing responsible dog ownership Bred dogs for 30 years. Since 9 years old have been a passionate guardian of dogs for 65.  I teach at Geelong U3A Dog Handling Skills classes on Sundays. Have been earnestly informed by U3A Committee member there is no need to source and write articles for the fortnightly magazine because owners only want to have fun. We DO need to look at the attitudes of the ageing human animals who pour all that love down a dogs throat but smack them when they are naughty because they love them!!
