What is Ethology?
Ethology is the study of animal behaviour which examines animal communication, animal culture, animal language, animal sexual behaviour and learning with its importance to training. Generally Ethology is more concerned with the patterns and processes of behaviour across a range of groups rather than just focusing on one particular species (see our Animal Behaviour courses).. however in relation to training needs our other courses are focused on single groups (horses, cats and dogs).Ethology is different from psychology (or comparative psychology) in that it does not consider animal behaviour in reference to human behaviour, but rather from what is understand about an animal’s anatomy, physiology etc.
