"Every Dog Is Different" Seminar Held at Gemini Dogs

This past Saturday, 85 people attended a Dogs of Course seminar held at Gemini Dogs, titled "Every Dog Is Different." Guest speakers Ray Coppinger, Bruce Blumberg, and Carolyn Barney discussed the evolution of dogs and wolves, differences among breeds of dogs, how our dogs' perception of the environment differs from our view of the same, and how we can apply these differences to life with our dogs.

For example, if your terrier likes to chase chipmunks, why not use that natural tendency to your advantage? You can use the chasing of the chipmunks as a reward for holding that sit stay when you open the door! What better motivator for your pooch than something she naturally perceives as wonderful?
