Animal Spirit Workshop hondentaal begrijpen en toepassenAugust 7 2022

The workshop "Dog Language" is interesting for everyone who lives and/or works with dogs. No matter how long you have had dogs.

Would you like to communicate with your dog using calming signals? Would you like to earn their respect and trust and learn how to work with your intuition instead of control and domination?  This workshop is right for you!!. Dogs use calming signals/dog language to avoid any and all confrontation. People are prone to do the opposite , mainly because they do not understand what their dog is saying to them.

Furthermore you will learn what repetitive , ongoing stress can cause in the physical and emotional body.   Dogs try to avoid conflict at any cost in their relationship to other dogs and also humans and we as humans can learn a lot from this behavior. These calming signals are the foundation of survival for all canine. Knowledge of these calming signals will give the dog "owner" and extra dimension in interpreting the dogs behavior and can be the foundation for a stress free and trusting relationship between animal and human.
