Terry Ryan Free Workshops


The Body Language of Canine Play -
How to Tell if Your Dog is Really Having Fun

Dates to be announced.
All dogs speak the same language. Chihuahuas or LabraDoodles, big dog or small, floppy ears or prick ears, they all use their bodies to communicate. Not all dogs have the same play styles. Not all dogs do a good job listening and responding to signals from other canines. With Power Point slides, videos, demonstrations and handouts, this presentation by Terry Ryan, CPDT, will help you learn how to recognize dogs playing well and dogs that aren’t playing at all, even though it looks that way.

For Folks who take their dogs to dog parks-

Understanding dog body language can help you be proactive when you visit a dog park, including when to go home!  We’ll help you learn how to recognize when your dog might be uncomfortable or stressed, what "bullying" behavior might look like and what a dog looks like when he is ready to fight. We’ll also show you how you might recognize a happy dog that just wants to play.

For Parents and Children-

If you are familiar with the subtle communications signs that dogs send, this can help you improve the safety of your children when dogs are present. Most dogs send signals before they consider biting.  Knowing these signals can help prevent frightening or harmful situations between children and dogs. 

For pet dog owners-

Understanding your dog’s body language is crucial part of dog training. Your dogs body language is a good predictor of a behavior that’s about to happen. Body language can also help you to determine how your dog is feeling. Good canine communication skillsfmunication with your dog results in successful training and a good relationship with your dog.

Home Alone

Dates to be announced.
When left home alone, some dogs act out in troublesome ways. You might come home to discover your furniture chewed on or your door scratched. Perhaps your dog had diarrhea or his mouth and coat are wet from stress panting and drooling. A generalized term for this type of behavior is the Latchkey Dog Syndrome. The dog is not doing this to get even with you for leaving him alone. His actions are a reaction to his environment. This type of behavior can be prevented or improved. Find out more by attending the Home Alone workshop.
