We take a brief break from our two-part behavioral euthanasia episodes to talk about ethology with Kim Brophey.
Kayla and Kim discuss:
- What is ethology?
- How can ethology interface with other approaches, like applied behavior analysis, for training?
- How does ethology play into differences between breeds and breed groups?
- Why would this matter for training and behavior?
- LEGS – learning, environment, genetics, and self – as a framework for understanding behavior.
Mentioned in this episode:
- Aggression in Dogs conference
- The Hidden Brain podcast episode on rage
- Kim’s book, “Meet Your Dog.”
- Kim’s business, DogDoorBehaviorCenter.com
- The book “Raising the Peaceable Kingdom.”

She’s an avid adventurer and has driven much of the Pan-American Highway with her border collie Barley. She now travels the US in a 2006 Sprinter with her two border collies, Barley and Niffler. Aside from running Journey Dog Training, Kayla also runs the nonprofit K9 Conservationists, where she and the dogs work as conservation detection dog teams.
