BARK, BARK! What is Your Dog Telling You? Join Sue Barns at 6:30 p.m. today at the Los Alamos Dog Obedience Club (LADOC), 246 East Road, for a free presentation of why dogs bark and what can be done about it.
Dogs have a lot to say, and some do it by barking a lot! There are many ways to reduce excessive barking, which is usually the result of fear, excitement or boredom.
This presentation will cover the various reasons dogs bark, what to do (and not to do) to reduce excessive barking. Come learn what your best friend is telling you, and find out how to work with him to foster a more peaceful life for you both!
