What is my Dog Saying? @ Winnipeg Humane Society
May 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

dog shouting in megaphoneUnderstanding Canine Communication

Taught by The WHS Dogs & Storks instructor, Dr. Renee Will, “What is My Dog Saying?” will help you better understand your canine friends, what they are saying to each other, to other animals and to you. A better understanding can strengthen training, adoption matches, owner decisions about dog park and daycare play and work with dogs in stressful situations as you and the dog are more likely to be “on the same page.”
