Ever heard of the expression “cheeky monkey”? That’s Ian. He’s a rascal! I never knew what was going to fly out of his mouth which makes him very fun to interview… and, I will admit, a little nerve-wracking! Ian’s a generous soul who made himself available to all of us pet business owners in the midst of his extremely busy worldwide travel schedule. (Thank you, Ian.) We experienced tech glitches the first two times we tried to interview him (ack!), and then his son, Jamie, offered to do the interview in person at Ian’s house. That’s why this video format is a little different than the others. Many people think “OH MY GOD, IAN DUNBAR!” and he is all that (and even more). He’s also a really kind, down-to-earth guy who knows how to treat people and dogs with love and respect. What a guy!

Veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and dog trainer, Dr. Ian Dunbar received his veterinary degree and a Special Honors degree in Physiology & Biochemistry from the Royal Veterinary College (London University) plus a doctorate in animal behavior from the Psychology Department at UC Berkeley, where he researched olfactory preferences and the development of aggression in domestic dogs. Dr. Dunbar has authored numerous books and DVDs about puppy/dog behavior and training, including How To Teach A New Dog Old Tricks and the SIRIUS® Puppy Training video.
In 1982, Dr. Dunbar designed and taught the world’s very first off-leash puppy socialization and training classes — SIRIUS® Puppy Training. Subsequently, he created and developed the San Francisco SPCA’s Animal Behavior Department, the American Kennel Club’s Gazette “Behavior” column, which he wrote for seven years, and the K9 GAMES®, which were first held in San Francisco in 1993 and continue as annual events in Japan and Europe. He hosted the popular UK television series Dogs With Dunbar for five seasons and has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including the Today Show (US) and Dash Village (Japan).
Additionally, Dr. Dunbar has consulted on a variety of movies — full-length features, documentaries and animation (including Pixar’s UP) and he has twice spoken at the prestigious eg Conference (TED). Over the past 40 years, Dr. Dunbar has given well over 1000 one-day seminars and workshops for dog trainers and veterinarians in an effort to popularize off-leash puppy socialization classes, temperament modification, and owner-friendly and dog-friendly dog training.
After he founded the Association of Pet Dog Trainers in 1993, Dr. Dunbar was inducted into the Dog Fancy Hall of Fame along with four of his heroes, James Herriot, Konrad Lorenz, Lassie, and Balto. Currently, Dr. Dunbar is President of the APDT Foundation, TopDog (CEO) of the Center for Applied Animal Behavior and Scientific Director for www.dogstardaily.com — a free online, multi-media educational website for puppy and dog owners.
