ANZ 322 - Community Canine

3.00 Cr
This course applies the knowledge and skills acquired in ANZ 321 and applies them to the working canine world. The different training, function, professionalism, and practices of a variety of specialized work will be examined and evaluated, including service dogs, therapy animal work, sport dog work, search and rescue, conservation scent detection, and military/police work. Human and animal protections including federal (ADA) and state laws will be discussed. A critical evaluation of training methods, animal labor, and the intersections of canine training and society is an essential part of the course. Multiple guests will join the class to discuss practical applications of canine training, including highlighting career options, discussing working with clients with special needs, and further developing an understanding of the human-canine bond. Fostering a dog is optional (see ANZ 322L 1 or 2 credits). This course includes both written and oral evaluation techniques.
