Dog Body Language (DISCOUNTED FOR US)

  • February 10, 2013 · 1:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Confused by your dog's behavior?

Worried about the way other dogs respond to your dog?

Scared by how strange dogs approach you or your dog?

Learning how to read the often subtle signals dog use to communicate will help you understand all dogs better. Dogs communicate a great deal of information with their body movements and postures. Much of their subtle signaling is easy to miss unless you know what to watch for. Body language will tell you if a dog is stressed or comfortable, ready to interact, ready to fight, or ready to flee.

I especially recommend this class to people who have reactive (barking and lunging) or fearful dogs. You may even find that behavior that appeared to happen "without warning" was actually preceded by multiple signals. Take home an extensive handout that will be your "field guide" to dog body language.

This class is a great compliment to the Scary Dog Monster class that took place in January.

THIS IS A FEE EVENT. THE COST IS $20 PER PERSON TO BE PAID DIRECTLY TO ME, JESSICA. THE NORMAL COST OF THIS CLASS IS $35 BUT I NEGOTIATED A DISCOUNT FOR OUR CLUB.

YOU CAN PAY ONLINE WITH A CREDIT CARD USING PAYPAL (LOOK FOR THE PAYPAL BUTTON WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR RSVP. IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS PLEASE MESSAGE ME. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I HAVE TRIED USING THIS METHOD) OR IN PERSON THE DAY OF THE EVEN IN CASH OR CHECK.

THIS EVENT IS FOR DOGGIE PARENTS. PLEASE COME TO LEARN WITHOUT YOUR DOG.

RSVPs for this meetup will close at 11 PM the day before the event. Message me if you need to change something after that day/time.

    Awesome class-I learned so much! Left me wondering, though, how insecure and messed up my pup really is...

    how much did I miss? I assumed the class would be an hour and half or so & had made plans to meet for a birthday afar thinking I would be OK, Wish I would have canceled the birthday!! This was a GREAT class & so much great info. Hope I didn't miss too much by having to leave.

      You just missed some more examples. I think you would be fine. You got the most important info.

    Hello everyone. Please remember that this class is just for people (leave your dogs at home). Also, if you have not pre-paid, remember to bring cash or a check for me tomorrow. I am covering the cost of the class myself and with 6 people on the RSVP list I should just be able to recoup my costs. If you can no longer attend, please update your RSVP so at least I know how much I will have to cover out of pocket.

    Thanks. Jessica

    Is it just for the owner or should we bring our dog(s)?
    Thanks,

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
