This workshop concentrates on dog-dog interactions and behaviors as it pertains to owners with more than one dog. Special considerations need to be taken for owners with more than one dog, or owners considering adding another dog to their household. Very often, dogs with difficulties interacting appropriately with other strange dogs are the youngest or newest members of multi-dog households. What might the reason for this be? In this workshop Sue will be detailing the most common problems associated with having more than one dog, as well as solutions for treating these problems.
