Learn how to understand and how to use canine body language, to identify distance increasing and distance decreasing behaviors. Learn how to use this body language to prevent dog bites and significantly reduce stress. Learn what emotional contagion is and how to use it. Leverage dog body language to enable you to see when a dog is consenting to something and when they are not. This, again, minimizes stress and maximizes bonding which is an ideal form of interacting with dogs!
