Canine Body Language

In some ways it’s pretty obvious what our dogs are trying to say. When they drop a ball at our feet we know they want to play. When they stare at us while we eat we know they want our food.

But what does it mean when they show the whites of their eyes, or when they hold their tails up high? And does a wagging tail always mean a dog is friendly? Knowing how to “read dog” can help improve your relationship with your dog, and also keep you and your children safe.

This one hour seminar is appropriate for adults, but also kids ages 10 and up. There is a $5.00 registration fee; children between the ages of 8-14 years are free.

Tuesday, March 15 from 6:30pm-7:30pm
Tuesday, May 10 from 6:30pm-7:30pm
