Dog Body Language & Play: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly (hosted by A Dog's Best Friend)
Saturday & Sunday, August 15-16, 9am-4:30pm | Coyote Point Shelter

When is play over the top, or even dangerous? Can you tell when a dog is simply defensive or rude and bullying? This seminar will offer insight into dog-to-dog, dog-to-human, and human-to-dog communication. This is an in-depth look at canine body language, and how we can better understand what our dogs are telling us.

Sarah is one of the most sought after international speakers on "all things dog" and has spoken for the Association of Pet Dog Trainers in the United States, Australia and New Zealand as well as shelter, veterinary and training conferences throughout the world.

This seminar is $175 for both days if registration is received by April 15th ($195 after April 15th). Price includes snacks, refreshments, and lunch on both days. This seminar will be held at the PHS/SPCA Coyote Point Shelter at 12 Airport Blvd, San Mateo. To register or learn more, click here.
