Course Description Understanding Canine Communication
Part 1 & 2 Saturday-Sunday, August 3 & 4
The seminar is designed to promote understanding of what our
dogs are communicating to us and other dogs. You will learn
how to use that information to effectively build your
relationship with your dog, and how to help your dog relate
safely and appropriately with other dogs. Sarah uses a
multi-media approach to her seminars that provides
participants with video and PowerPoint presentations that
pair with her knowledge and keen ability to connect with any
audience. Sarah is masterful at creating the optimal
learning experience! You will learn how to detect stress,
arousal, and fear associated behaviors in your dog; all
causes of reactivity and/or aggression. Once you have
learned these skills on the first day of the seminar on the
second day you will learn how your understanding of these concepts can help us create a safer,
saner and happier life for our canine friends. Dog
enthusiast or professional trainer** this could be one of
the most rewarding and beneficial learning opportunities you
will ever attend! AND… Sarah is SO much fun!
