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.
