Barking driving you crazy?

Your dog’s barking can be cute — when it’s on cue. Or useful, when they’re warning strangers away from your door. But when your dog’s vocalizing goes beyond the norm and becomes excessive, it can be frustrating and even cause you to react with anger, which is never productive with a pet. At that point, it’s time to get help.

The Washington Human Society Behavior & Learning Center is hosting “Decoding the Bark: Interpreting & Managing Your Dog’s Excessive Barking,” on Thursday, March 31 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. For just $15, you can learn why your dog is barking, what he is trying to say to you, and how you can prevent barking overload.

During the seminar the behavior and training counselor will describe what the different types of bark are (there are seven to ten different ones!) and what emotions your pooch is trying to convey with them. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions specific to your situation during the Q&A–but don’t expect the counselor to analyze your dog’s yips and yelps in person, the seminar is humans-only.

You must pre-register, and seats are limited. The seminar will be held at the WHS facility at 7315 Georgia, Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20012.
