Originally on the approved events list but I can't locate it now. A 6 part lecture discussing how veterinarians are the first and most important person to interact with a new puppy. Dr. Dunbar discussing fool proof ways to help the new puppy transition as well as how to creat more friendly dogs in the veterinary practice. Dr. Dunbar talks about what a veterinary can do to help the shy and fearful dogs and stress the most important thing to impress upon new owners is bite inhibition. Not only does this help the teething phase but it is a dog that can be dealt with instead of euthanized because of a biting history. He breaks down the importance of socialization and that there is more than just vaccinations and parasite prevention to discuss but the absolute importance of dog trainers in the practice to discuss bite inhibition, socialization, puppy classes etc. He concludes with what a vet practice can do to be the best. Receptionists being the face of your clinic - are the most important, they can make or break the practice. Dr. Dunbar also discusses creative ways to become more known. Hosting puppy play times in the evening, video nights and overall being more proactive in the community.
