In this workshop we'll review problem behaviours, both aggressive and non-aggressive. And look at the most appropriate behaviour modification plan for each case. To register click here.

We'll also examine the role that enrichment, and especially dog-dog play, can have in reducing stress and minimizing problem behaviour.

And we'll look at how best to handle behaviour modification with fearful, shutdown and anxious dogs.
