(One of 25 webinars that were featured in PPG's August Virtual Pet Care Summit)
Presented by Mary Jean Alsina
CEUs PPAB 1
This presentation will debunk myths that have been prevalent for a long time and which continue to cause problems in handlers' relationships with dogs. The topics will range from dominance theory to the fact that a wagging tail does not always mean a happy dog. Pet care providers will leave the webinar feeling more comfortable as to what is scientifically sound and what is not true, but has become accepted as such because of misleading representation in the media
