November 13, 2019 - The Secret Language of Dogs (VIC)

Why do some dogs tilt their heads when we talk to them? What’s that constant sniffing all about? Why does my dog yawn when I take its photo? Why do some dogs just not get along?

Dogs and humans have been living and working together for thousands of years. The relationships we build with dogs can be hugely beneficial to the well-being of both species. It can also be a source of stress, frustration and misunderstanding. 

This workshop hosted by Laneway Learning presented by Harriet - a dog trainer and behaviourist from All Dogs Are Good will examine the myths around dog behaviour and teach you to see things from a canine point of view.

It’s a fascinating world of scents, tail wags, woofs and play. During this workshop you will:

  • learn about the history and changing role of dogs in our world
  • discover how dogs communicate using their senses and body language
  • gain tips about how you can interact with dogs and resolve behaviour problems using modern and scientifically supported methods
  • understand how to keep dogs and humans safe by observing key canine signals

When: Wednesday 13th November 2019, from 8:00pm to 9:15pm
