Wolf hybrids, aka wolfdogs. What are they? How do they differ from dogs? What issues do wolfdog owners typically need help with?
This seminar focuses on things trainers must know in order to deal effectively with wolfdogs in private training or group classes, or to make an informed decision as to whether to deal with them at all. Oral and audio-visual presentation will be combined to address physical characteristics; behavior issues; training tips; legalities; the rabies issue; and more. Learn to separate myth from fact and get a realistic overview of these unique animals.
