Communicating with Canines:
Dogs communicate with each other largely through posture, position, movement and energy, and they respond best when we communicate with them in a similar fashion. People who understand common canine social rules and who utilize their body language effectively (whether or not they are holding onto a leash) are in an excellent position to bring out the best in their dogs. Verbal communication has its place (and we’ll discuss it), but knowing when and how to use it is important. This seminar will help participants understand the whats, hows and whys of canine communication.
Canine Aggression: Decoding the “bad: dog:
Aggression isn’t aggression isn’t aggression. In different circumstances, it can be rooted in fear, hormones, nature (for example, prey-drive) or, much less common, dominance. Most of the time it is situational (and therefore reversible). Identifying the underlying problem is crucial in each and every case. Seminar participants will learn about different types of canine aggression and how to respond to (and prevent) each quickly, safely and humanely.
