seminarscircleWe believe that education is a critical part to the success of our dogs in the urban world. A majority of the dogs we see with behaviour problems are caused by a miscommunication; and it is always our own miscommunication or misunderstanding of our dog's behaviour. Our mission is to provide comprehensive dog owner education. As such, we have developed a wide range of in-depth seminars to help you better understand your dog.

Do you often wonder what your dog is communicating to yourself, family members or other dogs? Dogs communicate primarily through body language and this seminar will help you to correctly understand more about how they do this. Through picture and video examples, you will leave this session with a deep comprehension and a better understanding of dog speak.

How to Train Your Spouse... and Your Dog!

Dogs adapt quickly to our ways and learn how to respond to us. They are amazing animals which is why they have become an integral part of the urban lifestyle. Part of our responsibility as guardians to our dogs should be that we understand how they learn and understand the world. This allows us to effectively assist them at successfully adapting into the human lifestyle. Don't miss this session full of useful information to help improve how you interact and interpret your dog's behaviour!
