DOG & LAW - most important provisions of the dog and animal laws - Code of conduct for dog owners - Requirements for traveling with dogs or importing a dog purchased from abroad 2. NEEDS, SOCIAL BEHAVIOR, LEARNING THEORY - Needs of a dog (activities, breed-specific behavior, signs and causes of excessive and insufficient demands) - Knowledge of social behavior (lifestyle and integration into a social network, communication and expressive behavior of the dog) - Learning theory of dogs taking into account the learning methods (classical and instrumental conditioning, learning through positive reinforcement) 3. TOOLS FOR DOG TRAINING - permitted aids for dog ownership such as collar, leash or muzzle (management tools) - Permitted aids such as clickers, dog whistle, rewards with food or toys - Information about prohibited aids such as choke collars and aids that punish the dog mentally and physically and the legal consequences of using them 4. TIME & FINANCIAL EXPENSES OF DOG OWNERSHIP - Costs for dog courses - Insurance - Medical expenses also dependent on dog breed and potential diseases - Dog food and equipment - Time required for supervision & utilization, as well as any resulting costs for dog care 5. SPECIFIC PURPOSES OF DOG BREEDS - Basic knowledge of intended use, as well as resulting information about the specific needs of the different breeds and any unwanted behavior they could show - Support in choosing the right breed of dog based on characteristics based on breed and not on the look "The theory course should not be attended earlier than a year before the start of dog ownership.
