Dog-to-dog play / Dog park safety
Have you considered taking your dog to a dog park, but aren't sure if you should? Do you want to learn more about reading dog body language and what good play and bad play looks like, so you can keep your dog safe when playing with other dogs?
Are you a dog class instructor, dog day care or boarding kennel owner who would like a ready-made presentation for staff and clients on dog-to-dog play and dog park safety?
Would you like to offer a safety and etiquette class to your community to give them the tools they need to better read and understand their dogs - and keep everyone safer?
Not every dog is, or should be, a "dog park dog"!
The safety and enjoyment of dog parks depends on one thing- dog owner education. This presentation will help teach dog owners watching off-leash play how to recognize red flags and when to step in and help their dog out of a risky situation.

|About The Presenter (BIO)||
Carol has been involved with training and showing dogs in both conformation and obedience since 1974. She began assisting in 1977 and teaching in 1978. Dana started instructing and assisting for LCDTC in 1989. During the 80's they were founding members of the Inland Empire Doberman Pinscher Club and Doberman Rescue.
While following every show circuit competing in AKC conformation and obedience and hanging ribbons on the wall was once a focus, Carol & Dana started traveling great distances to spend weekends at behavior seminars instead of show rings. Captivated by the study of canine behavior, they found their calling: teaching families to better understand their pets. They abandoned their choke chains and military style "forward & halt" training in favor of motivational no-force methods and haven't looked back.
