FORA.tv Speaker - Ian Dunbar
Dr. Ian Dunbar is a veterinarian, animal behaviorist, and writer. Dr. Dunbar received his veterinary degree and a Special Honors degree in Physiology & Biochemistry from the Royal Veterinary College (London University) and a doctorate in animal behavior from the Psychology Department at the University of California in Berkeley, where he spent ten years researching olfactory communication, the development of hierarchical social behavior, and aggression in domestic dogs.
Dr. Dunbar has written numerous books, including How To Teach A New Dog Old Tricks, the Good Little Dog Book and a series of Behavior Booklets: separate educational booklets on each of the most common pet behavior problems.
Additionally, Dunbar has hosted eleven videotapes on puppy/dog behavior and training, including SIRIUSÂ® Puppy Training, Training Dogs With Dunbar and Every Picture Tells A Story. All his videos have won a variety of awards. The famous SIRIUS Puppy Training video (the first dog training video ever produced) remains the all-time best selling dog video. For three years running the SIRIUSÂ® video has always been voted the #1 BEST DOG TRAINING VIDEO by the Association of Pet Dog trainers-the largest and most influential association of dog trainers in the world.
Before SIRIUSÂ® Puppy Training Classes there were simply no puppy classes-Dr. Dunbar developed them in 1981. Dr. Mary Lee Nitschke, the principal of Animal School in Oregon, has divided dog training into "the push-pull pre-SIRIUS Dark Ages and the post-SIRIUS era of dog-friendly dog training."
