Kristin - MUSINGSKristin’s Musings:

When I was thinking about what topic to interview Ian on for this year’s conference, it was hard to come up with just one topic so I thought I’d let my Facebook friends decide the topic. So many of you posted great questions for my interview with Ian (Thank you!) and he was able to answer a lot of them. This is the third time I’ve interviewed Ian and each time I walk away from the interview having learned so much from this amazing man about dogs and dog behavior. I think you will experience that too after watching this segment. Enjoy!

In 1982, Dr. Dunbar designed and taught the world’s very first off-leash puppy socialization and training classes — SIRIUS® Puppy Training. Next, 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).
