Want to open a whole new world of communication and strengthen the bond between you and your dog? Dogs actually have a complete system of "talking" to each other (and us!) using just their eyes, mouth, nose, whiskers, tails, ears, and body posture to tell us what they're thinking and how they're feeling! In this seminar, you will learn what to look for, what these signals mean, and how to respond and communicate with your dog completely silently. Ages 16 to Adult welcome.
