Too Close For Comfort 

Presented by: vera Wilkinson


What is referred to as body language in dogs is non-verbal communication in people. In both, postures and expressions speak volumes about the underlying emotions of the individual. Greetings, the use of personal space and angles of approach or withdrawal frequently lead to conflict between dogs and people…what are the differences between us? Do our differences account for more conflict than our similarities? Can dog behavior consultants apply or, at least, take advantage of a more thorough understanding of non-verbal communication in people, to the benefit of dogs? This interactive session will explore these and other possibilities.
