Learn to Speak Dog: A Body Language Workshop

Ever wanted to have a conversation with your dog?  Wonder what they’re thinking? Do you want to know how to tell what are good, safe social interactions, and what’s going to end badly?

Dogs spend their whole lives learning to speak “human.” Maybe it’s time we humans learned to speak dog.

Back by popular demand, this fun and informative 3 hour workshop includes lunch, snacks, and take-home materials.  Using video and picture presentation followed by hands-on work with real dogs in a practical setting, we will teach you to understand canine communication and body language, including being able to tell when your dog is uncomfortable, annoyed, frustrated, relaxed, and what “I love you” looks like in “Dog.” You’ll be able to use this information to not only better understand your best friend, but also train and protect him.  If you’ve ever wondered what they’re thinking, whether it’s safe to greet that other dog at the park, why they do those weird things, or wished you could communicate with your dog better, this is the workshop for you!

Who should come:
dog owners
dog walkers
shelter workers
dog sitters
mailmen/women/delivery drivers
older children
veterinarians and staff
Anyone who interacts with dogs

Although you will get to interact with our dogs, please let your own pooch relax at home for this workshop.
