A Dog Wellness Seminar with Turid Rugaas Seminar

Join us for an amazing weekend on September 14-15, 2019. A fun filled educational training seminar and information with world-renowned, internationally recognized speaker Turid Rugaas. Turid, the author of “Calming Signals” is making the journey to Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada from Norway on what may well be her last educational tour in North America. 

We increasingly see dog behaviors that reflect the stress of living in our busy human world, manifested through behaviors that dog owners don’t welcome. Dogs bark, lunge, dig, chew and even bite! How can we be sensitive to their needs to ensure they are living their best possible life?

These two days will be sure to enlighten anyone who has anything to do with dogs from the dog enthusiast, trainers, groomers, rescues, shelters, daycare, Boarding, vets and Vet techs – everyone will learn something from this seminar and have the opportunity to share Turid’s unique and refreshing view of how dogs’ lives can be enriched physically and mentally. 

Day One: Growing Up with Body and Mind Balance. Turid will cover information on keeping your dogs body and mind in balance using exercise and activities for the development of both physical and mental growth by using their nose and their brain. Of course, this starts with puppies and getting them off on the right paw!

Day Two: From Nose to Tail. On our second day, Turid will discuss the complete dog from nose to tail with additional emphasis on preventing behavior problems. We will learn how to keep dogs healthy through encouraging them to be dogs and use their natural skills. This will include more information on nose work, one of the activities that is simply exploding in popularity due to its effectiveness in challenging dogs to think; along with the ease of how to implement nose activities into your companion dog’s world. Nose work is not just for the competitive crowd, but can be adapted for everyone.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity of a lifetime, as Turid is scaling back significantly on her travels! This may well be your last opportunity to hear the decades of wisdom and experience from this incredible dog trainer, author and speaker. Questions may be addressed to seminars@dogspaw.ca.
