Dogs are constantly telling us about themselves, but we need to use our eyes rather than our ears to listen. Is that dog friendly or fearful? Is she playing nicely or being a bully? Is it safe to pet him? Through photos, diagrams, videos, and live dog demos, you'll learn what body cues to look for and what they mean.
Kris Hoffmann is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology at SLU and an amphibian and reptile conservation biologist with a soft spot for working dogs. Her wildlife detector dog-and-student teams locate endangered turtles for state biologists in the North East.
