Assessing and Interpreting Dog Behaviours

This course was developed for police officers who enter properties in the course of their duties.  The course is also appropriate for bylaw officers, surveyors, delivery people, parole officers and others who need to enter properties where there may be a dog.

“Assessing and Interpreting Dog Behaviors” is hosted by  Canadian Police Knowledge Network (the host for online police training known as “CPKN”) hosts this course. 

Learners are taught how to recognize common body signals dogs use and how to respond to these signals so that the dog is put at ease rather than feeling more threatened. 


The content of the course has been incorporated into the training program for new parole officers all across Canada. 

What people are saying

 "The Assessing and Interpreting Dog Behaviours course will be a valuable training asset for Agencies, as Officer safety is always of the highest priority. The course is full of useful and relevant information for any civil servant performing duties in communities or rural areas. Officers are routinely required to approach properties with very little information regarding the setting or circumstances of a property. This course provides examples of what to be on the lookout for and how to approach - or not approach - dogs encountered while performing duties. The videos included with the course provide great visual examples and explanations of dog body language and behavior. After completing this course, officers will be better educated and prepared to assess situations involving interactions with dogs.".
