Free Dog Behavior Classes in April

We have two fantastic free behavior help sessions for you in April. These sessions are free of charge and no registration is required.

These help session are for people only, so please leave your dog at home. Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your dog. These Help Sessions are free to the public on a first come, first seated basis. Please be aware that Animal Hospital of North Asheville will be seeing patients while the Help Session is in progress, so some of our parking will be reserved for the families of patients needing care. Thank you for understanding.

In case of inclement weather or icy roads, behavior help sessions will be cancelled. If you have any doubt whether the class will be held, check our Facebook page or call Animal Hospital of North Asheville at 828-253-3393.

Leash Aggression

April 15th, 7:00 p.m.

Does your dog growl, bark, lunge, and just get all into a tizzy when he sees other dogs or people? If so this class is for you. Learn body language so that you can better know what to expect, what steps you can take to prevent your dog from going into this state of mind, and lots more.

This class is being presented free of charge by Tristan Rehner, MS, CPDT-KA of Pet Behavior Aid. The mission of Pet Behavior Aid, a non-profit organization, is to increase the retention of companion animals in their homes in Asheville and Western NC through education and training programs for people who have dogs or cats, animal shelter and rescue workers, and the general community.

DOG Body Language Part II!

April 22nd, 7:00 p.m.

Join Dog-Ed to learn a new language.....DOG Part II!

Come learn what YOU can do to have safer and kinder interactions with dogs. We will also review what behavior and body language to look for when you are approaching or interacting with a dog.

Reading a dog's body language and being aware of your own, is not only helpful in predicting his or her reactions in situations, but also key to modifying their behavior. Becoming fluent in “Dog” will allow you to enjoy interactions with dogs and stay safe at the same time.

This free Behavior Help Session is being taught by Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed.
