Canine Body Language

The second webinar in the series identifies ways to interact with dogs (including shy and aggressive ones) to help ensure a positive experience for everyone.
Defensive Dog Handling
The third webinar in the series covers how to effectively defuse potential aggression with your own body language and how to properly use a leash and other common dog handling tools.
Canine Communications: Dog Introductions
The fourth and final webinar in the series will help you learn or polish your dog introduction skills, allowing for successful meet and greets.
