In December 2020 I held a 'Popping the Bubble' session at the International Dog Trainers Winter Summit.

I discuss how important it is that we try to see things differently according to different contexts, to help our dogs on a day-to-day basis.

🐾 Canine body language needs to be observed with social context in mind
🐾 The difference between ‘family v friend’
🐾 Our understanding of other species’ behavioural traits may help us explore those that are more familiar – in other words, what cats might be able to teach us about dogs!

Sign up for FREE and you can get instant access which includes the 32-minute presentation along with the recorded live Q&A afterwards. 🙌
