Skills for the Reactive Dog Presentation
Living with a reactive dog can be difficult. In this presentation Jane will explain how to help your dog learn to turn away from triggers such as other dogs, bikes, cars, etc. Having a dog that lunges and barks and completely "tunes out" the human end of the leash can be embarrassing, frustrating, and sometimes scary. Over the years, Jane has noticed that more often than not, it is how the leash is handled that triggers the dog into the unfavourable reaction. During the slide show presentation, you will learn how to connect with your dog. Learn leash skills that will communicate with rather than control your dog.
This presentation is for the human end of the leash only, but do bring your dog's leash...you will be learning the mechanics of leash skills on each other rather than learning on your dog.
Tuesday, August 16, 2016 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at the Training Grounds

Dog Speak Presentation
Jane Neve of Canine Conduct Training Solutions is presenting "What is My Dog Saying - at the Dog Park & On the Trails?"

Space is limited. This presentation is for the human end of the leash only, no dogs please.
