The Common

Lots of people love dogs. And just like people, dogs have a “language” that allows them to express themselves. Join us to learn to understand a dog’s body language, and learn the best way to approach a dog that you’d like to say hello to. Then put those skills in action on some real dogs.

Do you love animals? Join us the third Saturday of every month for Critter Day, fun live animal programming. Learning about animals helps children understand their connection to all living things.
