Be a Tree!
I feel very passionately about the human-dog bond and what better place to start strengthening that bond than with our children! As a dog trainer, I see clients having problems with their dogs all the time, from the simply annoying to extremely dangerous, all stemming from the human not being able to “read” their dog. Dogs do not speak a verbal language so it is our responsibility to learn their body language. Once people are able to understand and “read” their dog accurately, their entire relationship changes for the better and strengthen that bond. When children understand their dog, and strange dogs, they gain a feeling of control and power over the situation and no longer need to feel afraid. Dogs can be great friends to kids (and adults!) if we take the time to get to truly know them.
This is a 45-minute class for kids between 5-11 years (humans only).
From Doggone Safe, this program focuses on fun and interactive activities to teach children how to read dog body language and how to act safely around their own dog and strange dogs.
In addition to the “Be a Tree” presentation, author Wendy Wahman will do a reading of Don’t Lick the Dog and a special art activity too!
