Body Language Part 2:
How to Tell A Dog is Going to Bite, Before He Actually Bites
Sometimes a bite seems to come “out of the blue,” with what seems like no warning. Whether it’s biting another dog or biting a person, in reality dogs give many clues that they are feeling more and more like biting. In this webinar Sue Sternberg will detail, through extensive video footage, the many signs that a dog is getting ready to bite—whether it’s a person or another dog.
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.
