Cats W.I.N. - What is normal cat behavior?

Tuesday, June 16th at 7:00 pm - Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

Have you ever wondered "Why does my cat do that?" Join us to learn what normal behavior is for your cat and to discover appropriate outlets for normal feline behaviors to prevent them from developing into behavior problems.

Learn how to read your cat's body language and vocalizations to better understand her moods and desires. We will also talk about how cats learn, and even explore training techniques for cats! This help session is open to anyone interested in developing a better understanding of their cat's behavior.

This free Behavior Help Session is being presented by Tristan Rehner, MS, CPDT-KA of Pet Behavior Aid.

Help Sessions are for people only, so please leave your pet at home. Our goal is to teach you what you need to know to help your pet. 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. You may be directed to nearby parking that is available. Thank you for understanding.

In case of inclement weather, 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.

How to Help Your Dog's Noise Phobia

Tuesday, June 23rd at 7:00 pm - Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

Does your dog begin to pant or whine when they hear a sudden noise? Hide or frantically try to escape when fireworks go off or a thunderstorm hits? Does she or he salivate or use avoidance when seeing a person or object that has been associated with the “scary” noise?

In this free Behavior Help Session, you will learn why some dogs suffer from this issue, management strategies to use, tips on behavior modification, and adjuncts that may help decrease the intensity of your dog’s response to the noise.

This session is being presented by Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed.
