2015 APDT Annual Educational Conference & Trade Show

SA09 - An Overview of On Leash Dog-Dog Encounters

Oct 17, 2015 1:30pm ‐ Oct 17, 2015 3:00pm

Standard: $20.00


When dealing with dog-dog behaviors via on-leash interactions, it is important to understand how to assess arousal, leash-reactivity, aggression, dangerous predatory behaviors, trying to predict compatibility. Reading observations of body language help us to determine whether it is safe to let the dogs meet or play off leash. Through discussion and videos, attendees will hone their observation skills, learn to see subtle signs of aggression, and be able to see the details of body language that may help predict future behaviors. This session is an overview of the relevent\ hands-on work that was practiced during the hands-on workshop from this year's conference. This information can easily transfer to your personal training practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Improve and hone their observation skills
  • Review videos of dog interactions
  • Become better skilled at reading subtle warning signs of dog-dog problems
