This workshop is open to all trainers, behavior consultants, veterinarians, shelter staff, or anyone interested in learning more about dog aggression and how to stay safe. Newbies will learn a ton of skills that will allow them to remain safe. Seasoned veterans will discover new tools to add to their toolbox.
