Helping Dogs Thrive:
Life-Enhancing Behaviors, Bodywork, and Fitness with Lori Stevens

April 7th and 8th, 2018 in Honolulu, Oahu, Hawaii

This workshop is Lori’s first workshop in Honolulu, Hawaii.  
The workshop will focus on bodywork and fitness for middle-aged and active dogs.
Two-day seminar will cover:

*Bodywork for behavior, health, and performance
*Effective communication
*The power of observation skills
*Foundation behaviors for life
*Movement and its benefits
*The importance of proprioception
*Fitness exercises for life and performance
*How to support the aging process
*How to improve your dog's confidence and focus

The course material will be conveyed by Power Point presentations, video, demos and hands-on work with people and dogs. Lori Stevens teaches 100% of the course.

The airport you will fly into is Honolulu International Airport (airport code HNL).  Please do not fly into another airport in Hawaii, as it is probably on the wrong island!

If you are planning to travel to the workshop from the mainland, we recommend that you leave your dog at home as Hawaii has strict entry requirements for animals visiting the islands.  We also recommend that you purchase travel insurance in case of cancellation of the event due to unforeseen circumstances. We will not be responsible for any fees incurred by canceling your travel plans.
