Canine Myth Busting: Understanding Dog Logic
Are you worried your dog is trying to dominate you? Scared of your neighbor's pit bull? Have you wondered if some breeds are smarter than others or if different breeds need different types of training? Worried that you shouldn't play tug of war with your pup or that you shouldn't use food to train because then your dog will never listen to you without it? Join us for some good, old fashioned myth-busting--we'll talk about these and other controversial topics in the dog world and help you get a better understanding of how dogs think, what they want, and how to co-exist with them in your homes and on your beds.
This is a FREE seminar but also a fundraiser to sustain a pet food pantry at the Tree of Life food pantry, located in Blue Hill. Donations of cash or pet food will be collected at the door from anyone who would like to contribute.
