Have you ever wondered what's going through your dog's mind when they engage in behaviours that you would rather them not? Is your dog a barker? Or does your dog have separation anxiety when you leave them for more than 5 minutes? Does your dog pull and tug and pull some more when on leash? Are you feeling at a loss as to how to manage your dog's behaviour? Would you like to learn how to read your dog's body language? Animal Welfare League Qld (AWLQ) has the solution to all your queries and much more!
"Having a polite pet is more than just having a dog or puppy which can sit and shake hands. It's about a social, engaged dog which is confident in public and well behaved."
AWLQ is hosting a 'Dog Behaviour Seminar' at the end of the month at the Robina Community Centre, as part of Polite Pets Month this March. Led by AWLQ's Education Team, this interactive and informative evening aims to help you better understand your dog's behaviour and help combat common problems such as barking, separation anxiety, and leash reactivity. It'll also teach you how to read your dog's body language, and how to communicate with your dog so that they can understand.
Oh, and if this doesn't sound good enough, guess what - the much loved Mr Clooney from 'Big Brothers' will be making a special appearance - if you've always wanted to meet Mr Clooney in the flesh, now's your chance!

AWLQ is a charity founded on the Gold Coast in 1959 with the core mission of rehoming abandoned and surrendered companion animals. Across the four rehoming centres in South East Queensland, AWLQ cares for up to 17,500 animals each year, with a zero euthanasia policy on all healthy, treatable, and sociable animals; giving them the best possible chance of finding a furever home and of course, having a second chance at life. In addition, AWLQ also works in partnership with the state government, rescue groups, local councils, as well as the community to help improve the outcomes for abandoned pets. In fact, their unique and innovative programs, initiatives, and rehoming strategies are nationally recognised! By attending one of their seminars, you'll be supporting a very worthy cause and making a difference to the thousands of abandoned animals in AWLQ's care, in addition to, of course, gaining valuable information and insight into your dog's behaviour.
