March 31, 2009 - PRLog -- Playing with other dogs off-leash benefits the dog, the dog’s owner, and the community.  Dogs that are well-socialized and get enough exercise are healthier, happier, and less aggressive. They are less likely to bark, be destructive, or engage in aggression if they are able to expend pent-up energy during regular play or exercise. Whenever you put two or more animals together, however, there are risks.

MayDOG, the Maynard Dog Owners Group, is pleased to present an off-leash dog behavior workshop for anyone who takes their dogs off-leash (or wants to) – whether at a dog park, conservation area, or in their own backyard.  This workshop will help dog owners keep their dog safe when playing with other dogs, identify dog play styles, recognize early warning signs, and minimize potential dangers and fights between dogs.  Other topics will include teaching a solid “come” and “leave it”, manners when greeting other people and dogs, and leadership in a training relationship.

The workshop will be held on Sunday, May 3, 2009, from 1:30-3:00pm, at the DOGS! Learning Center, 577 Main Street, Hudson.  Pre-registration is required.  Registration covers up to two people and is $60, with discounts available to MayDOG members.  To register or for more information, visit the MayDOG website:
