The last talk of the year for the "Dog Talk" series will be on Friday, October 23 at 7 PM concerning stress in dogs.
Internationally renowned dog trainer Turid Rugaas and Agnes Vadidalo from Norway will make the presentation. Agnes will present her study on Dog Pulses and Dog Stress and its relation to certain activities.
Come learn about what activities stress dogs out. It may surprise you, as some of them are the most common, foundation activities people do with their dogs. Agnes has conducted the Dog Pulse Project for over two years, and she continues to research the relationship of pulse, stress, health, and what to do to help our canines not have extreme ranges of pulse in everyday life which can lead to many health and behavior problems. This is a must-attend talk for all dog owners and dog care workers, as you will not find this information anywhere else!
Agnes Vadidalo owns a doggy daycare and boarding/vacation get away for dogs in Norway. It is the ultimate in luxury as the dogs have their own bed and bedroom that is decorated just for them and in beautiful soothing colors. She incorporates stress relieving activities for each dog during their stay so that they are not worried about why their human moms and dads are not present.
The talk will be held at Lenoir Rhyne University's Center for Graduate Studies of Asheville, 36 Montford Avenue, Asheville. Tickets are just $20 and seating is limited. For reservations, call 828-545-2948.
