Description

In this 90-minute presentation, we will explore ways in which adults can create better relationships between kids and dogs. We will look at body language in dogs and how kids can influence our dog’s behavior for the better, or worse. We will be teaching kids how to evaluate dog body language to tell if it is a dog they want to interact with or not. Most importantly, we will also examine ways that kids can play with dogs and take care of pets in the home (looking at what kids can help with given different age groups and maturity levels!) This seminar is geared for parents and guardians who live with kids and dogs, or professionals who are looking for new ideas to integrate into their training program. Kids over the age of 10 are welcome to come, ask questions, and learn techniques with two dogs we will be providing. We will have trainers on hand to help supervise interactions appropriately. There will be some demonstrations with dogs so please leave your dog at home. When: Sunday, July 14th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Where: The Rodgers Family Training and Education Room at the MSPCA’s Nevins Farm in Methuen
