Understanding Dog Aggression
Saturday, 21 March 2015

Join Scott Sheaffer for a 2-hour informative seminar designed to give you more in-depth information about what true dog aggression is. Many people label a dog as being "aggressive" when in reality the dog may simply be insecure or anxious. The seminar will help you better differentiate between these behaviors. There will be a general question and answer session as well.


When: Saturday April 11 from 3 pm – 5 pm
Where: Reverchon Recreation Center, 3505 Maple Ave
Who: Scott Sheaffer, CDBC, CPDT-KA
Cost: $10 for pre-register, $15 at the door
Sign up: at Park Cities Pet Sitter
