Body Language: What Is My Dog Trying To Say? | Saturday 16th March, 9.30am – 11.30am
March 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am£25.00
Would this workshop be helpful for you?
If you have a dog that..
- Gets ridiculously over excited when they see other dogs
- Jumps up all over people when they visit or when out on walks
- Barks aggressively when they see another dog whilst on the lead
- Can’t listen when there are distractions around
Or all of the above.. then this workshop is for you.
What will it cover?
When dogs are over the top, it’s usually because they weren’t understood earlier on in the conversation with their people.
Gemma has a large family of dogs who co-exist peacefully because she’s able to understand them when they ‘whisper’ through their body language. This avoids them needing to ‘shout’ to be understood.
Canine body language is incredibly subtle and is often misunderstood.
By taking a closer look we can often learn much more than we ever thought possible.
Where will it be held?
To help avoid dogs feeling too overwhelmed, the workshop will take place at Daybreak Dogs headquarters which has an enclosed, outdoor sand arena.
It allows the dogs to have plenty of room to move around, and space to get further away if they’re finding things a bit much.
How will the workshop be structured? My dog can be worried by other dogs..
Initially Gemma will have each dog come into the arena by themselves to talk through what she sees is going on for them in that environment.
If appropriate, she may bring out stooge dogs, or the group might end up working in the arena together later into the workshop. This all depends on the dogs booked in on the day.
The safety and well-being of all dogs is something that Gemma takes extremely seriously, so please be assured your dog will offered a good experience at this workshop.
