THU 28 MAR 2019 | SOCIAL CANINE SEMINAR | WHAT DOG OWNERS NEED TO KNOW

Social Canine Seminar - What Dog Owners Need to Know | hosted by Minds Alike

 

Presented by Laura Ward | BSc (hons), APDT 01184, VN, TCBTS

  

Dog owners are under consistent pressure on walks to read and react to situations. With every interaction you must interpret your dog's body language, as well as the non-verbal communication of other dog owners and their dogs. It is not as easy as it looks!

 

This seminar discusses how to keep your dog(s) socially happy with a better understanding of canine (and human) body language, socialisation and aggression. We will also discuss how to avoid or minimise problems or prevent them from escalating further should they arise.

Whether you have only just become a dog owner or have had dogs for a number of years - this seminar is for you.

THU 25 APR 2019 | DOGS & YOUNG CHILDREN | WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW

Dogs and Young Children - What Parents Need to Know | hosted by Minds Alike

 

Presented by Laura Ward | BSc (hons), APDT 01184, VN, TCBTS

 

Are you introducing a baby to the family, and you have an existing pet dog? There will be many questions in terms of what to prepare for, how to prepare your canine baby for the changes that will occur and what can be done to ensure the transition is easy.

 

As parents, it is important to be able to read low level stress signalling, so you can deal with situations and recognise a lack of coping before problems arise. Not only is it important to teach your children how to be respectful and become a well informed dog owner, empathising and reading their pets emotions. It is also important to teach children how to behave around other dogs, as statistically children who own are dog are more likely to be bitten by somebody elses pet. What their pet may tolerate is not the same as others. 

 

If you already have children and are interested in getting a puppy or a rescue dog then this informative evening will discuss how your dog expresses himself and deals with conflict.


Finally, we will also discuss what is conflicting to a dog - their perspective of family life and human actions, and how we can ensure life is as easy and harmonious as we would all like it to be.

 

Things you need to know:

  • This talk is aimed at adults, but children are welcome at the parent's discretion (accompanied by an adult)
  • Parking is available on the street outside the hall and alongside the church - please arrive early as carpark spots are soon taken up!
  • Refreshments are provided
