Dog Aggression

With the arrival of spring, we find ourselves enjoying walks with our dogs.  However, meeting an unfamiliar, aggressive dog can be responsible for injury to you, your pet, or your family members.    

I personally encountered an aggressive dog while walking my dogs in my own neighborhood.   Luckily my dogs nor I sustained permanent injuries, but some families are not so fortunate.    The profound grief pet parents endure at the untimely death of their beloved companion can be prevented. 


Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation is partnering with Animal Behavior Instructor, Penny Lane to offer a FREE two hour course  in dog aggression.  The class will cover the types and signs of aggression and predicting aggression through observing the dog's body language.  You will learn safer ways of approaching unfamiliar dogs.  You will also learn how to prepare for a walk with your dog and what to do if you or your dog is attacked.


Through educating others about dog aggression, I hope to prevent other pets and pet owners from encountering a dangerous and possibly deadly situation.
