The Annenberg PetSpace, located in Playa Vista, is hosting a variety of engaging events in January. Every Wednesday at 12pm is “Walking Wednesday – Loose Leash Walking,” where participants can learn tips on leash-walking manners. Additionally, every Saturday at 12pm is “Schooling Saturday – an Overview of Training Techniques,” at which experts will discuss what behavior to expect from newly adopted pets, as well as tips for creating a training plan.
On Saturday, January 20th from 12-1pm, Dr. Clive Wynne will give a lecture titled “There’s No Place Like Home – Shelter Dogs and Adoption.” Dr. Wynne is a Wallis Annenberg Leadership Institute Fellow and professor of behavioral psychology at Arizona State University. The talk will focus on areas of human-dog interaction that can have the biggest impact on dog and human welfare, as well as specific issues shelter dogs face and complexities of adoption. Dr. Wynne is a member of a cohort of research scientists engaging with questions surrounding human-animal bonds. Dr. Eric Strauss, Executive Director of CURes, is also part of this team.
