Online Webinar – Assessing Canine Behavior in the Shelter: Input from Multiple Sources @ Online Webinar - ASPCApro
Nov 6 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Our understanding of how best to assess the behavior of dogs coming into shelters and rescues continues to evolve. Recent research supports the view that gathering information from a variety of sources results in a more accurate picture of the individual dog. However, it’s important to strike the right balance between taking the time to collect data and getting the dog out of the shelter and into a home. In the first part of this webinar, we’ll present the ASPCA’s position and review the value and limitations of various sources of information. In the second part, you’ll be introduced to methods for collecting and compiling that information and how best to make decisions about placement.
