Dog Park Class – Recognizing and Shaping Fair Play

June 4, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Recognizing and Shaping Fair Play 

Your dog may go to the dog park but does she play fairly?  Does he enjoy his playtime?  Is she asking for your help when things get rough?  What should you do?   Should you step in, and, if so, when?

Learn to read your dog’s language; learn to respond to your dog’s requests in a fun, supportive and informative environment!  For the fourth year in a row, we are offering a class structured to teach owners how to read their dog’s signals and appropriately respond to situations when visiting the dog park.  This Workshop covers strategies for shaping fair and friendly dog play.

Don’t allow the other dogs teach your dog inappropriate play!   Don’t allow the bullies to take advantage of your dog and don’t allow your dog be the bully!

Learn to see danger signs in other dogs through your dog’s eyes.  Learn how to support your dog at the park no matter what happens!  Have an interactive and fun time while learning valuable handling skills.  This Workshop is staffed by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers with years of field experience.  We offer rolling enrollment, enroll once and come when you can – you don’t need to attend every week but we’d love it if you could!

Come play with us!  This is a dog and owner class: people without dogs are welcome to observe but dogs without owners are not allowed to attend.  Children under 5 are discouraged from entering the arena; Children over 12 need a parent present to participate.
