POP UP TALK: From the Dog’s Perspective

Do you ever wonder why your dog behaves a certain way? Or why they choose a particular behavior in a given scenario?

During this Pop Up Talk, which takes place in our Zoom Room, Traci Bisson, owner and founder of Golden Dog Adventure Co., talks with Monica Allaire-McMahon, certified, professional dog trainer, and owner of Barrington Barks & Behavior. Monica will discuss the whys of your dog’s behavior from an ethological perspective and how you can reduce challenging behaviors and improve wellbeing using an Ethogram.

Participants will:

  1. Receive a copy of a blank Ethogram in advance to be filled out during and after the pop-up talk as an aid to reducing behavior struggles;
  2. Learn the definition of and importance of the Ethogram and the categories within it;
  3. Learn several action steps to take immediately to reduce stress and improve wellbeing.

After the presentation, join us for our Official Club Adventure: Sniff, Search, Share on Sunday, July 16th from 9:00 – 11:00am in Epping, NH.
