Does Your Dog Need an Intervention? Try Leash Lungers Anonymous

Here's a class for humans that can make a walk in the park a lot more enjoyable not just for the dog-walker and the dog, but for all the other humans they encounter on their outings. It's offered by the Washington Humane Society, and you can learn more by clicking here.

Leash Lungers Anonymous: Intervention for Your Leash-Aggressive Dog
Sunday, August 28
9:00am - 1:00pm
Washington Humane Society
7315 Georgia Ave., NW
Washington, D.C., DC 20012
Registration Fee: $49 (includes lunch)

Course description:

Going for a casual stroll can be taken for granted by dog-owners who don’t experience the embarrassment of having their dog aggressively lunge at other dogs or people – a behavior referred to as “leash-lunging.”

Join the WHS Behavior and Learning Center as we address the topic head-on and give owners of leash-lunging dogs the knowledge, tools and techniques that are necessary to stage their own intervention!

In this in-depth seminar, that will include a multi-media presentation, lecture and Q & A session, we will discuss:

• A comprehensive Behavior modification plan
• Understanding what makes dogs leash-aggressive
• Management techniques
• Dogs that lunge at dogs and people
• And more!
Please note: This seminar is for humans only.
