Dr. Patricia McConnell presents the topic Happy and Healthy
Play between People and Dogs. Play is fun, but don't be fooled into thinking
it's just goofy or frivolous. Play is powerful stuff, and it has a profound
influence on your relationship with your dog, and your dog's relationships with
others of the same species.
Learn how play can enhance your relationship with
your dog, improve your dog's responsiveness, and provide your dog with the
mental and physical exercise he or she needs. Learn how to identify appropriate
and inappropriate play between dogs, and how to ensure that your dog(s) "play
well with others."
We'll talk about up-to-date research on how to tell your dog
you want to play (most of us aren't very good at it!), some charming tricks and
games to wow your friends, and how not to play with your dog.
If you'd like a
happier, more responsive dog and an enhanced understanding of play between dogs,
this seminar is for you.
