  • Apartment Living with Dogs Seminar

    Sep 21st, 2019
    11:00am - 12:30pm
    Humane Rescue Alliance Training Center | 15 Oglethorpe Street NW


    Apartment living can pose challenges for our dogs due to tight quarters and the constant exposure to other unfamiliar people and dogs. This can be difficult for dog owners and non-dog owners alike, who may have a different set of expectations for what that cohabitation should look like. This seminar will help to set you up for success in selecting the right dog, everyday living situations, and what to do if you find yourself in the middle of a conflict with one of your neighbors.

    Topics covered include:

    ● What to consider when adopting a dog for apartment living

    ● Understanding dog behavior for an apartment setting

    ● Setting your dog up for success in your apartment community

    ● Apartment etiquette: behaviors to help you and your dog to be courteous neighbors

    ● What to do when conflict happens

    Positive Dog Solutions (PDS) is a dog behavior consulting company with a mission to build strong and healthy relationships between people, their dogs, and the community in which they live, employing proven, positive and practical solutions. PDS focuses on addressing canine behavior challenges, promoting positive child and dog dynamics, building fear-free vet visits, providing behavior assessments for rescue groups, conflict coaching when disputes arise, and providing legal support when disputes turn to legal action.

    This is a 1 ½ hour seminar offered by co-owners Vivian Levén, MS, CPDT-KSA, CBCC-KA and Jackie Maffucci, Ph.D., CPDT-KSA will lead the seminar.

    *This seminar is without dogs.
