We were fortunate to have Certified Canine Behavior Counselor & Trainer Kim Melanson of Dingo Dog Studio join us for a special presentation. Kim shared why early socialization is important to our puppy's well-being, fun socialization activities for your pup, and how to set up your new puppy for success.
We're excited to report that there was a packed house for our recent "Click to Calm" talk, led by Canine Behavior Training Consultant Emma Parsons, who provided invaluable guidance for humanely and effectively helping dogs who are anxious or reactive to people or other dogs.
Thank you to Nance Moran and Dana Langley from Life is Dog, Inc. for joining us for a free talk on overcoming common dog behavior challenges. The session was jam packed with helpful tips on applying positive reinforcement (treats and praise), which is a proven method for encouraging positive behaviors in our dogs.
We were thrilled to have a full house for our recent talk on dog behavior, led by renowned animal behaviorist Kelley Bollen, MS, CABC. As the owner and director of Animal Alliances, LLC, Kelley consults with pet owners and shelters to improve the lives of companion animals. She spoke about common dog behavior issues such as barking and jumping, provided practical strategies for addressing them, and answered questions about specific dog issues.
We were honored to have Stephanie Harris, Massachusetts State Director for the Humane Society of the US, join us for a discussion about hot legislative topics in Massachusetts. She shared what each of us can do to help create a more humane society right here in the Commonwealth.
A special thank you!
We're grateful to Middlesex Savings Bank and the Humane Society of the US for sponsoring our recent talks, to the Hopkinton Community Center and the Hopkinton Public Library for hosting us, and to our friends at HCAM for recording the Lecture Series.
