Dog Park PicDog Speak Presentation

Jane Neve of Canine Conduct Training Solutions is presenting "What is My Dog Saying - at the Dog Park & On the Trails?"  This 2 hours presentation teaches participants how to recognize appropriate dog play; to assist pet owners in the community to better understand how dogs communicate;  how to tell good play from risky interactions.   Space is limited.  This presentation is for the human end of the leash only, no dogs please.
 
Attendance to this Presentation is a prerequisite for membership to the Black Creek Dog Park.  This ensures all Park users are educated in Park etiquette and safety and all dogs coming to the Park are current in their immunization and parasite control schedule. Dog Park drop-in is a suggested donation of $5 each to a maximum of $20/month. Park hours are Dawn to Dusk.
 
Next Presentations are Tuesday, September 28, 2016.  From 6pm to 8:30pm beginning with a tour of the Dog Park.

Cost for the Presentation is $20 per person or $30 per couple (bring a friend!)

rottweiler smallSkills 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.

Contact Jane to set up a time. Presentation and lesson is held at the Training Grounds in Black Creek.

CA$35.00
