The origin of dogs is shrouded in mystery. In this course, you will learn how to interpret the often contradictory ideas about how, why, where and when dogs arose. Geneticists, archaeologists, anthropologists and behavioral scientists offer a variety of often opposing ideas about how dogs—the first domesticated species—arose. Some place the origin of dogs over 100,000 years ago; others place the start of dogs just 12,000 years ago. Claims for the location of the origin of dogs range from China to Europe and many places in between. Diverse scholars have suggested dogs arose as trash scavengers or as hunters’ helpers. This course will provide you with the tools you need to find your own way through the confusing claims about the origin of dogs. This course is part of the Dog Behavior and Cognition XSeries.  No previous knowledge of any of the sciences contributing to the origins of dogs is assumed. Form your own assessment of the mysterious origins of “man’s best friend.” This course is approved for CEUs by the following organizations: Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT) Students who pass will receive a certificate for a total of 7 CEUs for behavior consultants.
