Happy Tails Dog Studio of Portland, Maine, will be hosting a Canine Aggression Seminar—the first in an ongoing series of dog training events with animal behavior professionals—on March 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at its Bishop Street training facility.
The seminar, open to veterinarians, veterinary technicians, trainers, shelter workers and dog owners, will be taught by Nicholas Dodman, BVMS, Dipl. ACVB, Dipl. ACVA, professor, section head and program director at the Animal Behavior Department of Clinical Sciences at Tufts’ Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr. Dodman will cover the various types of aggression and respective prevention and management, including fear-based conditions, compulsive behaviors, medical causes and behavioral medications.
Continuing education units are available for veterinarians and veterinary technicians.
The seminar is being sponsored by Portland-based Planet Dog. The company’s flagship initiative is the Planet Dog Foundation, which receives a percentage of every Planet Dog purchase, including toys, collars and treats. In turn, the money is donated back to nonprofit canine service programs nationwide.
