Fear is the most primitive and necessary of all emotions—it’s also the one that interferes most with the lives of us and our companions. Fear can be the reason some dogs are aggressive to other dogs and/or people, or it can cause anxiety that wrecks havoc on our homes. This seminar will cover the causes of fear, the body language of fear and ways we can help our dogs overcome this most prevalent of issues.

Trish King established the Canine Behavior Academy at the Marin Humane Society and leads seminars, webinars and workshops on dog behavior, canine management, temperament assessment and the handling of difficult dogs.  She is the author of PARENTING YOUR DOG (TFH Publications) and writes articles on dog behavior for numerous publications.  Her goal is always to enrich the lives of both animals and people through the humane and thoughtful use of relationship work, environmental management and training.

Participation is limited and a $50 prepaid registration fee is required. To reserve a seat, please contact Jen Walker at or call 831-454-7202.
