Park Cities Pet Sitter Announces a "Learn to Speak Dog: Understanding How Dogs Communicate with Humans and Each Other" Seminar to Be Held on Sunday, August 12th


The seminar, led by dog training expert, Scott Sheaffer, will help dog owners better understand what their dog is trying to communicate to them and to other humans or dogs around them.

DALLAS (PRWEB) June 13, 2018

Dogs are constantly attempting to communicate with the people and animals around them. Their body language and vocalizations say a lot about what they're thinking, and make their behaviors easier to predict than most people realize. However, when humans don't know what a dog is saying, intentions can be misunderstand and that can interfere with the dog-human relationship. In a multi-dog home, it's important that the humans in the household also know what the dogs are saying to each other so everyone can live in peace and harmony.

Park Cities Pet Sitter is hosting a seminar by renowned dog behavior expert, Scott Sheaffer on Sunday, August 12th designed to specifically help attendees better understand what their dog(s) are communicating to them. The seminar, called "Learn to Speak Dog: Understanding How Dogs Communicate with Humans and Each Other" will be held from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at Pinot's Palette at 4560 W. Mockingbird Lane in Dallas. Cost of the seminar is $25 when pre-registering prior to August 10th, or tickets can be purchased for $30 at the door the day of the event.

In the 3 hour seminar, Scott Sheaffer, CDBC, CPDT-KA, will provide information on:

> How to know when a dog is conflicted about things
> Detecting stress and anxiety in a dog
> Behaviors that indicate a dog is trying to get away from conflict
> Ways a dog is communicating that he or she needs attention
> Body language that a dog uses to let people know he or she feels friendly and playful
> Ways humans can let dogs know they are not a threat to them
> Avoiding dog bites by seeing the early warning signs
> Special precautions for young children interacting with dogs

Just about everyone who has a dog in their home will benefit from the material. Additionally, anyone who works with dogs such as rescue organizations, groomers, veterinarian practice employees and dog trainers will benefit as well.
