Dogs and humans have been living and working together for thousands of years. Our relationships with dogs can be hugely beneficial to the wellbeing of both species. But it can also be a source of stress, frustration and misunderstanding.
Join Harriet in this workshop examining the myths around dog behaviour.
Dogs are everywhere and we often think if something is familiar we inherently understand it, but some common questions pop up:
Why do some dogs tilt their heads when we talk to them?
What’s that constant sniffing all about?
Why does my dog yawn when I take its photo?
Why do some dogs just not get along?
Come join us as we explore the fascinating world of scents, tail wags, woofs and play to see things from a canine point of view.
