Interesting. Possibly useful to a degree. However...

An important point to remember is that dogs, like every other non-human animal, have no choice: they will ALWAYS behave like dogs. We, on the other hand, are beings of volitional consciousness. We can choose to act in ways in opposition to our own best interests. We can choose to be irrational. Makes applying principles of behaviorism, classical conditioning, operant conditioning, to people, somewhat problematic.
