Library Lecture - "Reading" Your Dog's Body Language

  • North County Branch Library

"Reading" Your Dog's Body Language
with Molly Sumner of Kindred Companions LLC

Do you know when your dog is feeling anxious? Sick? Now quite themselves? Ever wish you could know what is on your dog's mind? Dogs communicate via body language and while most people know the basics, dogs are actually very detailed communicators. To the untrained eye, we miss so much of what our dogs are trying to tell us.

Molly Sumner CDBC, CPDT-KSA, CBATI, of Kindred Companions wil teach you the details of canine communication, dispel some myths, and help you better understand your companions in ways you never knew were possible. Because once a dog knows you're listening... they really show you who they are. Molly will bring one of her dogs to demostrate. The program is for "people" only, so please leave your pet at home.
