Communicating with Canines

Dogs and humans have a unique relationship, yet many people struggle to communicate with their dogs and understand what their dogs are trying to “say.” Recent advancements in the science of canine cognition and behavior offer fascinating insight into how dogs think, learn, and socialize. This understanding gives us the opportunity to form deeper, more fun and effective relationships with our canine companions. This class reviews the basics of canine cognition, behavior, body language and learning theory, giving participants fresh appreciation and insight into the dogs that surround us.
