  Description of Seminar/Conference

Learn about the study of animal personality and the findings to date. Do animals have personalities? What does this mean for a professional trainer, behaviorist, and other animal professionals?

This is a 90 minute Live interactive webinar where Dr. Gosling will discuss animal personality. Some of the issues Dr. Gosling will address include

  • anthropomorphism
  • determining the best level at which to conceptualize personality
  • the need to develop a common taxonomy for describing personality
  • the importance of construct validation
  • and integrating the ideas of variation within individuals and across the lifespan

Finally, he will consider the implications of this work in science (e.g., understanding the genetic bases of personality) and applied settings (e.g., identifying dogs well suited to explosive-detection work).
