Woof! What is the Dog Saying?

This flagship lecture series was launched in 2014, with a dozen lectures each year.  It has been presented for/at: UVM’s esteemed Olli Lecture Series (in several locations), Middlebury College, the Helyn Kerr Humane Education Series (Chittenden County Humane Society), libraries across Vermont, and many community educational programs throughout New England.

Is a yawn always just a yawn? Why does a dog shake off even when it’s not wet? Why is a growl a good thing? Is a tail wag always friendly?
This popular, long-running dog communication and safety lecture is a multi-media extravaganza of fun where the audience also gets to test their "dog reading" skills. We’ll demystify dog communication, reveal some common dog-human misunderstandings, and explore how we can all live safely and happily together.  At the end of the presentation, the audience engages in several fun, interactive exercises to practice reading dog body language.
