Ever wonder what your dog is trying to tell you? Or wonder if you are doing all you can for your pet’s health?

The Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons (ARF) announces its upcoming “Bark the Question” lecture series. The first lecture in the series is “Dog Communication” scheduled for Friday, June 21, 2024, at 6 PM and then “Pet Wellness and Cancer Prevention” on Wednesday, July 17, 2024, at 6 PM. The events will take place at ARF in the William P. Rayner Training Center, at 124 Daniels Hole Road in East Hampton. These lectures are free to the public.

These engaging and informative talks will feature industry experts focusing on animal welfare topics, including the human-animal bond, and animal care and psychology – providing invaluable insights for dog owners and enthusiasts alike.

The speaker for ARF’s “Bark the Question: Dog Communication” on Friday, June 21, is Veronica Grzybowska, CBCC-KA, who will discuss how dogs communicate with each other and with us, and the difference between these communications. Body language, calming signals and vocalization are all part of a dog’s communication vocabulary, and humans need to understand what dogs are saying and meaning.

Dr. Nicole Leibman is the Senior Veterinarian, at Schwarzman Animal Medical Center and has been practicing clinical oncology for over 15 years in the New York area. Dr. Leibman will discuss the most common cancers and share the latest in case studies and treatments for dogs and cats.

Attendees can have their pressing questions answered by these experts during the Q&A following each presentation. The events will be moderated by Caryl Glaab, Director of Training Programs at the William P. Rayner Training Center at ARF.
