How to help your fearful dog

Is your dog afraid of ordinary things like vacuum cleaners or items dropped on the ground? Does your dog run for cover during thunderstorms or fireworks? Join us for a casual conversation about why dogs develop fears and phobias - from the common to the bizarre.

Learn ways to help your dog get past his/her fears, and maybe how to understand your dog a little better. We'll also learn how to recognize common signs of stress in dogs - a growl might stop you in your tracks, but would you notice a yawn? Dog body language is subtle... and fascinating!

Join Mittsy Voiles, B.A., CPDT-KA, Behaviorist for the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic for a 90-minute workshop on fears and phobias. (Please note that this workshop is for humans only.)

When: Monday, August 13, 2018, 6-8pm

Where: We'll meet in the Community Education room at the Humane Society of Jefferson County's new building (W6127 Kiesling Road, Jefferson, WI 53549). The session is free, but please consider bringing an item from the shelter's wishlist or a cash donation.

RSVP: We'd love to know how many people are planning to attend, so we can set up the room accordingly. Please contact the shelter by phone at 920-674-2048, or email [email protected], or sign up on the HSJC Facebook page. See you there!

This event is co-sponsored by the Lake Mills Veterinary Clinic and the Humane Society of Jefferson County.
