Do you need some peace and quiet? Have neighbors ever complained or has animal control been at your door? Do you feel like you've tried everything and nothing has worked? This session is for you. Learn the different reasons that dogs may bark excessively, how to assess what is motivating your dog’s vocalization, and what training techniques will work best for your dog’s type of barking.

A little about our Free Help Presentations:

Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. As much as we wish we could include your pet in this class, it is for humans only, so please leave all those sweet and wonderful pets at home.

These Help Presentations 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, the class will be canceled. If you have any doubt about whether the class will be held, check our Facebook page or call Animal Hospital of North Asheville at 828-253-3393.
