Facebook Live Q & A on Dog Behaviour and Training
Join me Gemma Saunders and Chris Rea on Facebook Live from the comfort of your own sofa, Monday 1st February at 7pm, where we'll be discussing dog related topics and answers any questions you have on canine behaviour and training.
We aim for the session to be around 30mins long but this may be a tad longer.
The Facebook live will be on the Companion Pet Care Services page: https://www.facebook.com/companionpetcareservices/
If you have questions please write a post on this event or email them to and we'll try to get them answered during the Live Q&A session, if we don't get round to it during this session we'll endeavour to cover it in our next session. Also please feel free to ask us questions while we are Live.
We plan on doing one of these every 3 months.
When asking a question please give as much information as possible. Such as mentioning breed, age, specific behaviours pre, during and post the incident, male or female, castrated or not, your dogs normal personality, the environment, how at the time you are feeling, if you've seeked professional advice before, how long the problem has been going on for, change in daily routine such as building work being done, new family member, you're home more, you're home less, new pet joined the family, change in diet etc. Please also feel free to ask any question. It doesn't particularly have to be an issue, it can just be a curious question.
