In this video, dog training expert Sue Ketland explains the EMRA technique of assessing and changing dog behaviour and discusses how it can help with behaviour problems.

EMRA, or Emotion, Mood and Reinforcement Assessment, forms the outline of the behaviour modification programme at COAPE (the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology).

There are a number of elements to this programme. One looks at how certain behaviours in dogs can be reinforced either intentionally or unintentionally through rewards and what this means in practise. It also looks at the difference between mood and emotion and what a dog needs to have a contented mood.

Sue Ketland, Behaviour and Training Consultant with Woodgreen Animal Shelter, here looks at the practical application of this method and at how breed type can influence a dog's needs.
