SAT. FEBRUARY 15

DOG-EARED BOOK CLUB meets to discuss Ali Brown’s “Scardy Dog! Understanding & Rehabilitating Your Reactive Dog.”  St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 6030 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda. 10:00 to 11:30 am.  Join us for our next book club meeting to discuss “Scardy Dog.” If your dog lunges at people or other dogs on walks, barks non-stop at the window, or loses control when people come to your door, this book will help explain why your dog acts this way … and what to do about it. Brown’s recommendations are humane, easy to grasp, and firmly grounded in the science of animal behavior. Please try to read most of the book before the meeting. For more information, go to http://yourdogsfriend.org/free-workshops/ or call 301-983-5913. Email us at register@yourdogsfriend.info if you have any questions. 

 

SUN., FEBRUARY 23

FREE WORKSHOP.  OVERCOMING YOUR DOG’S ANXIETY—HELP FOR PUPPY MILL, HOARDING, AND OTHER SEVERELY ANXIOUS DOGS. St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 6030 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda. 1:00 to 3:30 pm. Some dogs are afraid in their own homes. They may stay in their “safe” place, like under a desk or on the couch, instead of venturing out to other parts of the house. Stairs, ceiling fans, the dishwasher–all scary.  Your dog hides from visitors. Maybe he does not want to go outside, even in the yard. Getting in the car is terrifying. Expert trainer Jeni Grant will explain how to help these special needs dogs. Please leave your dog at home. For more information, go to http://yourdogsfriend.org/free-workshops/ or call 301-983-5913. Email us at register@yourdogsfriend.info if you have any questions.
