Public Event: Is this Dog Friendly?

Public Event: Is this Dog Friendly?

Mark your calendars! On Wednesday, September 21 at 7 p.m. I will be giving a presentation at the Brownell Library in Essex Junction! As always, I am excited to give you a glimpse into my world and show you how to be safe with your dog and others.

Presentation Description:

“Nation-wide shelters and rescues are working towards the “no-kill” movement- a movement described by the No Kill Advocacy Center as, “an end to the killing of all non-irremediably suffering animals,” or animals in physical pain.

On the surface, “no-kill” sounds great, but animals have more than physical needs and as professionals we are beginning to see more dogs with behavior and aggression problems being placed into homes.

What does this mean for you? Understanding dog body language is absolutely key to keeping you and your family safe and out of harm’s way when greeting unknown dogs. This presentation will focus on dog body language basics, stress behaviors and absolute warning signs that a dog is asking for space immediately.

This presentation is open and free to the public.”
