Drives 101

Duration: 8:10



In this short video, Brian discusses the three instinctual drives that all dogs use for survival - Pack Drive, Prey Drive, and Defense Drive. Brian discusses how he uses an understanding of these drives as a part of his initial assessment of a dog, and how he then uses that assessment to help inform his approach to training and rehabilitation with each individual.
