The way humans use body language and the choices we give dogs have profound effects on the dogs' behavior. Animal welfare professionals who understand how to effectively use their body language will provide dogs with more sound assessments, and will reduce bites and improve quality of life for the dogs in their care. Webinar attendees will learn why the dominance model is outdated and how to identify other ways to interact with dogs (including shy and aggressive ones) for a positive outcome. This free, 60-minute webinar is geared towards animal shelter staff/volunteers and veterinary staff. It is also useful for dog trainers, daycare owners and groomers.
