Pet Help Sessions - February 2015

How to Help Your Leash Reactive Dog

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 at 7:00 pm - Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

Does your dog growl, bark, lunge, and just get all into a tizzy when he or she sees other dogs or people while on a leash? If so, this class is for you. At this free, people-only behavior help session, you will learn canine body language so that you can better know what to expect at each encounter. You will also learn what steps you can take to prevent your dog from going into this state of mind, and you will learn lots more!

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

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.

Learn a new language... Dog! (Canine Body Language)

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 at 7:00 pm - Animal Hospital of North Asheville Education Room

Come learn how to "read" your dog's posture and signals, so you can better understand your dog's emotions and motivations.

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

This class is being presented free of charge by Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed.
