    Help! I Can’t Cope! An Introduction to stress in dogs

    With: Sheila Harper B ED, BA
    Venue: Colwich and Little Haywood Village Hall, Chilwell Avenue, Little Haywood, Staffordshire ST18 0QZ
    Date: 8th-9th July 2017
    Cost: £125.00

    This 2-day course is designed to increase awareness of the issues surrounding stress in dogs.

    It is important to appreciate both the physical and mental impact of stress in dogs and to understand the contributory factors. From dogs that have difficulty concentrating, to those that become sound sensitive or reactive with other dogs, people or objects, it is important to examine the issues that result in this behaviour and to offer strategies to help them live a more balanced life. Often just a few minor changes can make a huge impact to the dog’s ability to cope and also can build up our relationship with dogs.

     Sheila offers a real insight into the reasons behind such extreme behaviour ranges including a number of useful tried and tested practical strategies for making life easier for you and your dog.
