Understanding Canine Body Language Part 1: We will discuss neutral and appropriate behavior, to understand calm and relaxed body postures. We will observe normal play movements as they pertain to the family and other dogs. We we discuss what overstimulated and innapropriate play looks like and how to control it. During this fun lecture with videos, photos of real life examples our  canine pals in action, you can walk away feeling confident knowing how dogs communicate with each other and us.  Come for knowledge and laughs in part 1 of this 2 part series.
