Putting the “BODY” back into Canine Body Language

 Dogs are walking, breathing truth tellers - Fall Dates to be posted shortly

The "body" is incapable of deception.  These workshops will teach you how to bypass human thought with intention that is placed upon our dogs when reading body language. Are your interactions making connection or interruptions? How SAFE does your dog really feel around you? Can your dog turn to you, under high duress, and engage safely via trust and connection?

The body cycles through past triggers and imprints as the dog hits their social breakdown point. Can you decipher them? You will! Your skills at reading body language are invaluable when you read the BODY before the MIND.

All workshop content is retained for you in a private Facebook study group that you’ll stay in forever! New content is added often!

Video presentation, LIVE demo dogs and Q&A Session.

Level 1

PUTTING THE BODY BACK INTO CANINE BODY LANGUAGE

Fall Dates TBA: from 10:30 AM TO 12:30 PM (COFFEE/SNACKS INCLUDED)

  • Social Interactions:  When the dog feels WELL inside, they will be in their social drive. Understanding social movement begins the process of reading body language well. What does good pure social engagement look like? Loving you vs. feeling SAFE with you… this is an eye opener.

  • Instinctual Interactions:  The point of social breakdown. Learn to recognize breakdown points and imprints as the dog begins to tell their stories. Recognizing “survival mode” is crucial to reading body language.

  • Walking Truth Tellers: The Stress Templates:  Incapable of deception, dogs will begin to unwind their pasts in the present moment. Learn to read these subtle yet important pieces of their life story.

  • Certificate of Completion
