Dog Behavior Workshop Lead by AUSB Student for Inquisitive Pet Parents, Saturday August 24

IC-Dog-LogoThis unique – and free – dog behavior workshop goes beyond basic “obedience” techniques by teaching valuable canine “parenting” skills – so that you can succeed at raising a healthy and happy dog. From understanding the reasons why your dog does what they do when they do it, to gaining the skills for developing a customized training plan, attendees will learn how to get more of the behaviors they want while limiting and preventing inappropriate habits.

By the end of this workshop, pet parents will go home with skills they can use to train their dog no matter what the individual goals may be. This in-depth workshop consists of lecture, discussion and interactive worksheets. Main topics include:

  • How dogs learn
  • Motivation
  • Dog body language
  • Loose leash walking, coming when called, shyness towards strangers
  • On-leash dog-dog reactivity
  • Techniques you can use to stop your dog from getting into mischief
  • How to get more or less of the behaviors you want
  • Q&A
