Dogs communicate at all times and it is our responsibility as pet care professionals to learn their language. Like human communication, canine language includes vocalizations, body postures and facial expressions.
Off-leash dog play is a service that continues to grow in popularity with dog owners. It is critical that pet care facility owners and operators who make the decision to offer any type of group play service maintain a focus on safety.
Your role as dog playgroup leader is to keep all dogs safe through close observation and use of dog management skills. The leader role is easier when you create a bond with the dogs you lead and earn their respect.
