Dog-Harmony hosts "Learn to Talk Dog" presented by Debbie Revell, RN, Dip CABT, CDBD, ACCBD, on both June 20th at the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce and July 18th at the Comfort Inn in Niceville from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. This seminar is ideal for veterinary employees, shelter employees and volunteers, and anyone actively working with dogs.
Humans talk, dogs observe. Our dogs are giving us cues and signals with their body language all the time. However, most of the time we don’t recognize these signals. You will learn to recognize fearful vs aggressive canine body language and learn human body language basics too. We will discuss two myths that sabotage many human-canine relationships and steps to better communication. Come join us and learn how to ‘listen with your eyes’ and improve your understanding and communication with dogs. Videos and case studies will be presented.
