Completed Class: Dog Behavior and Language – Mini Workshop

I am thrilled to announce that I will be bringing Dog Behaviorist Julie Hart of Hart2heartcanine to Grand Junction December 10-11, 2022. There will be a workshop/presentation on December 10th from 9:30am -2:00pm and several opportunities for private sessions.

Here is what some Workshop attendees had to say:

– I really enjoyed Julie’s Workshop.  Her visit to our home was a nice reminder that we as the owners need to be the leader of the pack and she gave us input on how we can accomplish that.

– Thank You!  I am already applying what I learned in class.
