WORKSHOP 7th May in Lewes - Dogs that need space

Post by Rescue Remedies » Wed Mar 29, 2017 10:27 am

Four Positive Paws is running a workshop on Sunday 7th May in Lewes.

Aggression, Reactivity and Dogs that need Space is still very misunderstood. There are such positive and subtle steps that can be taken to avoid situations and to support a dog that needs help.

The workshop will be dog centred
