'Working Canines' focuses on the domestic dog within the context of servicing human needs. Working dogs herd our cattle and sheep, provide us with personal protection and national security, and give independence to the visually impaired. In this unit we will examine the factors that influence performance and trainability in the working dog through an in-depth study of canine structure and function, sensory perception, temperament and behaviour, health-care and kennel management.
