A unique work that is the first of its kind, entirely based on scientific data. Just how does a dog declare to another dog that he perceives himself to be 'stronger' and in a position of superiority ? And how does he demonstrate this superiority ? What should we focus on when evaluating dog-dog and dog-human relationships ? Each behaviour is described and illustrated with professional photographs and authentic videos filmed by the author during socialisation classes and behavioural evaluations. 51 BEHAVIOURS - 71 VIDEOS - 85 PHOTOGRAPHS

An ethogram is the list of behaviours typical of a given species, and is an indispensible tool in learning to understand, and in studying, the social behaviour of dogs. This ethogram is not only the most complete and up-to-date available: it is also entirely based on scientific data.
In preparation and soon to be published: DVD Stress, flight and de-escalation behaviours, and DVD Play behaviours.
What it is: the complete list of all the imposing behaviours of the dog, described and illustrated with both photographs and videos How it can be used: the ethogram is an indispensible tool in learning to understand, and in studying, the social behaviour of dogs. Who it’s designed for: anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of the social behaviour of dogs. What are imposing behaviours ? not all dogs are equal: their age, sex, personality and experience all influence their relationships with other dogs. The assymetry in relationships can be seen in the signals and behaviours described and illustrated in detail in this DVD. The ethogram of imposing behaviours is a an extremely useful tool in learning to recognise and evaluate the social behaviour of dogs, which can be useful in living with dogs, and which becomes fundamental in dog training.

My research on the ethogram began with my work in evaluating ex-fighting dogs in a rescue and rehabilitation program for pit bull dogs. Since 2004, I have been conducting research on the social behaviour of dogs, and collecting information and data on all of the behaviours described by various authors, or that I have observed and analysed during my research. . In 2008, I began to pull together this information in the form of an ethogram. This also involved the search for photographs (from the archive of Daniele Robotti) and filming of not only behavioural evaluations but also interactions between dogs in socialisation classes. This work, undertaken over the course of several years, is collected in this DVD series, the first of which was dedicated to agonistic behaviours of the dog: that is, behaviours associated with aggression: threat displays, defense and attack behaviours. . In 2008, the preliminary results of the research project involving the ex-fighting pit bull dogs were presented at the Canine Science Forum in Budapest (in collaboration with Prof. Cristina Lorenzi of the Biology degree programme of the university of Turin, and Prof. Albertini of the Veterinary College of the University of Milan). In 2010, the preliminary results of the research project on inter-specific aggression were presented at the Canine Science Forum in Vienna (in collaborationwith Prof. Paola Valsecchi and Dr. Shanis Barnard). This ethogram is the result of 6 years of study and research, alongside years of work in the field. (Alexa Capra)
