Body Language Part 1:
What Does “Friendly” Look Like?
What does it mean when we call a dog “friendly”? What, exactly, does “friendliness” look like to humans and to other dogs? Is “friendly “ a way to describe a relaxed greeting? Is “friendly” an action, or a state of mind, or is it a fleeting state or a permanent description? In this webinar, through extensive video footage, Sue Sternberg will explore and define “friendliness” in dogs, both as it applies to humans and also to other dogs.
Sue is inviting participants to submit short video clips (30 seconds) for analysis for either Part 1 or Part 2 of this series. If you want to submit what you believe friendly (or unfriendly) looks like in your dog, of if you happen to catch a dog just before he bites, please submit his YouTube or Dropbox link, or email to: Suesternberg@icloud.com at least two weeks prior to the webinar date. Submission of video does not guarantee that it will be used in the webinar.
