This three part course will cover canine body language from beginning to end, giving dog trainers and behavior consultants all the knowledge they need to know to read and evaluate dogs. The course will use both still photos and video and will cover body language in play and also body language related to fear and aggression. The course will be invaluable for trainers and consultants, but also daycare staff, veterinarians and their staff, and rescue or shelter employees or volunteers.

Cara Shannon began her love of dogs and dog behavior while working with her German Shepherd puppy, Joby, over 16 years ago.  When she later adopted Buddy and Chance, both dogs with aggression and fear issues, her love of canine behavior was solidified.  Although she has been training dogs since 1993, she decided to hang up her law degree and follow this passion full time in 2005, when she founded Buddy’s Chance.  Cara studied with Bob Bailey, Susan Smith, Dr. Susan Friedman, Terry Ryan, Kathy Sdao, Dr. Ray Coppinger, Ken Ramirez, and many more, and served as the Vice President of the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.  Cara  holds a Juris Doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Law. Cara works with dogs with advanced behavior issues like aggression, fear, and anxiety and has designed one-of-a-kind training classes to help clients successfully address reactivity and aggression towards people and other dogs. She now shares these methods with other dog trainers across the country. Cara also is the Author of “Bad to the Bone: Analyzing and Assessing Dog Bites,” a DVD designed to teach other dog behavior consultants to assess the severity of dogs bites.
