SAVE THE DATES AND SIGN UP FOR A TWO PART WORKSHOP WITH TRISH KING
August 23, 9:00 - 1:00, Part I - EMOTIONS AND BODY LANGUAGE - More than Dominant/Submissive. We all want to be able to read dogs' body language, but to do that, you need to understand where the language comes from. Like humans, dogs project what they're feeling into the environment. This workshop will discuss all the emotions and what behaviors they can lead to.

September 13, 9:00 - 1:00, Part II - Dog to Dog Aggression. One of the most common behavior problems in our pets, dog to dog aggression comes in many forms, from leash frustration to actual rage. This workshop will cover what causes dog aggression, and what we humans can do to help our pets get through it.
