Dogs Misbehaving - help is at hand

PUPPIES AND adolescent dogs become problems when they carry out normal dog behaviour which often inconveniences their owners like - barking, larking, jumping & humping, guarding, growling, howling or fowling, fighting, biting, lead pulling & peeing, chewing, wrecking, chasing & nipping, running away & turning a deaf ear.

Someone making her mark in the field of understanding why dogs do what they do is Turid Rugaas. She is from Norway and following years of studying dogs, and a vast experience in successfully re-training aggressive dogs has come up with a solution. Turid says 'I have proved beyond doubt that dogs respond best to kind, positive methods but you do need to understand their natural behaviour and know how to react to what you see.'

To find out more about Turid's 'Success without Stress' ways to train a dog at an illustrated talk entitled 'Young Dogs'. Entry is by ticket, starting at 7.15pm on Tuesday 16th October at the Great Barr Hotel. The speakers are Turid's two associates in England, Sheila Harper BEd, BA, and Associate Member of the UK Registry of Canine Behaviourists and Alison Rowbotham, also a behaviourist and regular speaker at 'Dogwise' forums.

Tickets are 7, payable to & available from 'Dogwise' 9 Longmoor Road, Sutton Coldfield, W Midlands, B73 6UB. If you apply please send a SAE.
