Pups and Pregnancy

Babies indeed are a bundle of joy, but for dogs, they can be a bundle of stress! Join Bryan Bailey as he discusses all of the vital information dog owners need to know to smooth the transition from families with dogs to families with dogs and children.

Learn whether or not your dog needs to sniff the baby's blankets, what kind of household changes you may need to make ahead of time, how to safely introduce your dog to your new baby, and while no one wants to think about aggression, we will discuss the do's and don'ts to keep your baby safe around your dog. 

Join us for this fun and informative seminar, and you will feel confident and prepared to bring home your new baby.

LEARN HOW TO EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR DOG

Do you wish you had an app to communicate with your dog?

Dogs do not have the benefit of language, a tool we humans rely upon to effectively communicate with other humans on a daily basis. Instead, their ability to communicate with their human owners and other dogs relies upon a myriad of fundamental signals and responses that were created by nature thousands of years ago, and not by mankind. Understanding and recognizing these signals is crucial in developing a cooperative and safe coexistence with our dogs. Imagine traveling to a distant land where you do not understand the spoken language or the behaviors that are customary to the established culture.

If you can imagine this, then you have a glimpse of what it’s like to be a dog in a human world.

Understanding Canine Aggression

Nothing causes more anguish in our relationship with our dogs than aggression.

Whether your dog is the aggressor, or you or your dog have been the recipient of aggression, the result of such behavior can lead to lawsuits, hefty veterinary bills, damaged relationships, personal injuries, even death. In 2013, dog attacks led to 32 human fatalities in the United States and over 300,000 dogs were euthanized for biting.

The domestic dog, much like its wild cousin, the gray wolf, is the champion of compromise. Understanding the dynamics of canine social behavior and the development of aggression is essential to create techniques that favor non-aggressive responses to all human and dog encounters.

Instructor Bryan Bailey is a renowned expert in wolf behavior and dog aggression. The information provided in this seminar will benefit all dog owners, veterinarians, kennel operators, pet sitters, police K-9 officers and professional dog trainers.
