Pet Help Sessions - August 2014

How to Help Your Leash Reactive Dog

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 on Tuesday, August 19th at 7:00 in the AHNA Education Room 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.

These help sessions 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.
