In the second part of this series, we will compile all the core pieces into a coherent message by looking at the whole dog. In addition to body language, you’ll also learn about the range of dog vocalizations, and what dogs are able to know about others from what they smell.
Recognize what dogs are communicating
Identify how to respond properly to dogs based on their body language
How dogs learn about others using their sense of smell
These webinars are geared towards animal shelter staff, volunteers and veterinary staff. They are also useful for dog trainers, doggie daycare owners and dog groomers.
