Join expert dog behaviourist and author of _Dognitive Therapy_Laura Vissaritis to find out how dogs really do make us better people at this free event.
Laura has written a number of books about what she knows best - dogs. She’s spent most of her life understanding canine behaviour and is passionate about helping people get the best out of their dogs and themselves. Her background in psychology and her love for animals has given her an insight into the canine and human mind. Laura believes that once we truly know our dogs, we can solve any behavioural problems, and we can build a friendship unlike any other.
In this 1-hour interactive online session, Laura explores how dogs have forged their way into our hearts over 30,000 years. Hear about the health and mental benefits of dog ownership and the impact of your emotional baggage on dogs and how to unpack it. Laura will also share common myths about dog training and advise how you can build a bond with your dog to have a great relationship based on mutual trust and respect.
If you already have a dog or a thinking about bringing a dog into your home, this is a great opportunity to learn more about this extraordinary animal.
Laura is a qualified dog behaviourist with many years of experience. With her expertise in psychology and education, she formulated the ‘Dognitive Therapy’ approach to dog training, helping thousands of people not only develop better relationships with their dogs but also improve their own lives. Laura lives in Victoria with her Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Chester, rescue dogs, Alma and Cash, and rescue cat, Pacho.
