Appropriate Play for Dogs
Time & Location
About the Event
Dogs are social creatures and when raised correctly and with the right
experiences can bring us so much joy. Dogs are like children and we want to
teach and train them in the best way possible. We want to ensure they have
great experiences and avoid pitfalls.
Dogs are hard wired to play from being puppies but some dogs can miss out
on vital lessons if they are not given the right opportunities to learn.
Dogs will only play when they feel safe and secure and often we have to
teach dogs what is 'acceptable' and what is not. We do this through ethical
What many can assume is cute puppy play or just typical dog play can often
leave some dogs stressed and worried and lead them to reacting in ways we
do not want them to. They learn the wrong response, which becomes the go
to/right response for the dog.
This course looks in depth at play and through videos and theory we explore
and explain what is going on and how to best protect your own and other
dogs around you. Ensuring your dog is safe, happy and secure in life!
