Veterinarian, animal behaviorist and author Dr. Sophia Yin will speak from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

Yin will present back-to-back lectures: “Teaching Fido to Learn to Earn: Developing Leadership in Humans and Impulse Control in Dogs” and “Help! My Dog Barks and Lunges at Other Dogs!: How to Handle Your Fearful or Reactive Dog.”

She will present foundation exercises for dogs and dog owners to practice in her Learn to Earn program. Dogs will learn impulse control and to look to humans for guidance. In her follow-up lecture, Yin will present a comprehensive plan for helping fearful or reactive dogs overcome their behavioral problems through desensitization and counter-conditioning training.

At the end of the evening, owners will understand how to successfully use these exercises to help their dog when it overreacts to other dogs, people, sounds or veterinarians. Participants will learn the connection between aggression, fear and inadequate socialization, and how to read a dog’s body language to avoid worse behavior.

This workshop will help owners gain the skills and knowledge necessary to help their dogs overcome behavioral problems and reach their potential.

Yin works at San Francisco Veterinary Specialists, writes for several veterinary and popular magazines, makes animal behavior house calls and has consulted for several zoos. She also lectures and teaches workshops internationally on animal behavior and low stress handling, and has served as a behavior expert for television shows such as “Dogs 101” on Animal Planet.

Yin is the author of numerous books and publications. Book-signings and sales will follow her presentations.
No reservations are required and the program is free. For more information, contact Joan Tuss at joan.tuss@yolocounty.org.
