Barking
This guide gets to the heart of the barking matter–the causes (there are usually many!) and the cures (what does and doesn’t work). What’s “acceptable barking” and what isn’t. Dogs will bark! But it can get out of hand, and you need to know how to handle it when it does. Experienced DogLife Skills Instructor and Kindness Specialist Christy Paxton tells you how.

Read Body Language!
Despite the barking, whining, growling and “talking,” dogs are at their core nonverbal communicators. They use body language to convey a lot of information to other dogs. Learn a little about this “foreign language” to greatly enhance your training experience as well as your relationship with your dog. A wagging tail is not always good! A dog who is not moving is not always relaxed or “doing good”! Experienced DogLife Skills Instructor and Kindness Specialist Christy Paxton shares the “tells” that help you really understand what your dog is “saying.”

Experienced DogLife Skills Instructor and Kindness Specialist Christy Paxton tells you how to identify “normal” energy and what to do about that other stuff.
