Using Body Language to Work with Canine Aggression
Zofia does not use food/treats in her work with aggressive dogs, and in this webinar, Zofia will showcase her expertise in canine behavior by presenting films directly from her work with dogs. Participants can expect to witness real-life examples of her innovative approach, "In a Dialogue with the Dog," as she addresses aggression issues in dogs towards people. Zofia's unique method emphasizes the importance of understanding and responding to a dog's body language to help them cope with stress and fear, ultimately fostering a sense of comfort in social situations with other dogs. Notably, Zofia's approach sets her apart, as she avoids the use of treats or snacks during dog therapy to ensure a pure and unfiltered connection with the dogs she works with.
