Shelter Playgroup Alliance has gathered a group of well-educated animal behavior and training professionals with experience in open- and limited-admission shelters to create these guidelines. The result is an approach grounded in behavioral science and the LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) ethical standard. They all agree that there is no “one best way” and have written the guidelines to be flexible to meet the needs of your shelter. This 2DAY seminar's speaker Mara Veles, MA is the executive directer of Shelter Playgroup Alliance. She will cover the information of the guideline and show attendees many videos about actual situations. She also will customize this seminar for common situation in Japan.
