Social learning in puppies

Join us in this new workshop​!

Recent scientific evidence shows that puppies as young as 8 weeks old can already learn socially from humans and from other dogs.

Lecturer: Dr. Claudia Fugazza, PhD

Research Fellow at the Department of Ethology Eötvös Loránd University – Budapest

Puppies show a natural predisposition to do

what their human companion does…


We think it is time to take into account dog´s natural predisposition when we train them!

This experimental workshop is devised to develop ethologically oriented training procedures for training puppies based on their social learning predispositions. 

Theory will be directed by Dr. Fugazza! She will explain the most recent scientific results about social learning in puppies. Then with demonstrator puppies puts everything into a live practice.

Ask the organizer about the details to participate with your puppy as a demonstrator.
