Welcome to Canine Communication

Have you ever been unsure what your dog is trying to say? Is there a behavior you can't seem to figure out? Are you nervous about off-leash interactions because you are not quite sure if your dog is enjoying them? This webinar is for you! 

This class will cover the basics of canine communication so you can better understand why your dog does what he does. You will develop the confidence to:

  • Effectively monitor your dog's behavior around people and other dogs.
  • Recognize signs when your dog is uncomfortable so you can make educated choices.
  • Navigate off-leash play while knowing when you should intervene.
  • Foster a positive relationship with your canine companion based on mutual understanding.


  • Must internet access and a device that has a camera, such as a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
  • No refunds will be made after class starts. If there's an unforeseen emergency, please contact your instructor.
