Is Your Dog Telling You to Chill? with Janis Goto

July 13 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm HST


Have you seen a dog turn its head away when someone hugs them? Does your dog find something amazing to smell on the ground when another dog is approaching? These are just two, of many, calming signals. Join us to understand the various calming signals a dog uses to communicate with other dogs, as well as humans, when they want to calm themselves or others. Use this knowledge to your advantage to know when your dog feels uncomfortable in a situation, or when they are working on getting themselves to a relaxed state, so they can be praised for the effort.


Fee: $25
