Pet Help Sessions - November 2014

How to Help Your Dog Bark Less

Do you need some peace and quiet? Have neighbors complained and you now have Animal Services at your door? Feel like you've tried everything and nothing has worked? This free session is for you.

You will learn:

  • The different reasons that dogs may bark excessively
  • How to assess what is motivating your dog’s vocalization
  • What training techniques will work best for your dog’s type of barking

This class is being presented free of charge on Tuesday, November 11, 2014 at 7:00 in the AHNA Education Room by Jenny White, CPDT-KA of Dog-Ed.

These 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. 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. You may be directed to nearby parking that is available. Thank you for understanding.
