Improving Canine Communication


Improving Canine Communication In Animal Assisted Interventions:

Using Mindfulness and “Dog” as a Second Language to Strengthen Our Relationships

February 1 - 2, 2019

The human and dog relationship can be so strong, yet the miscommunication between species is so prevalent.


This language (and behavior) barrier can harm the dog and relationship unintentionally. For those who work with dogs, this conference will focus on how learning to speak “dog” can improve the relationships between humans and canine partners. Additionally, this conference, with an emphasis on self-awareness and mindfulness in the human animal bond, is excellent for those who practice or are interested in Animal Assisted Interventions.


CEs available for Occupational Therapists (AOTA), Social Workers (Michigan), Counselors (NBCC) and dog trainers (CPDT).
