Participants will discuss risky situations and how to respond appropriately to decrease the chance of handler and dog injury. Attendees will practice using a long line; creating a harness using a slip lead; keeping yourself safe if a dog begins to get aggressive; how to involve a novice handler or passer-by to turn a dangerous situation into a safer one; and how to break-up a dog fight. During this session, participants will be in small groups and engage in a significant amount of hands-on practice with stuffed dogs. All materials needed for the workshop will be provided for the duration of the session.
