Everyone in shelter and rescue work wants the dogs in their care to go to stable homes. However, there are very few resources for people who are adopting adolescent or adult dogs into their families ? most of the information written for new owners is about adopting a puppy ? and things don't always go as smoothly as hoped. In this webinar, critically acclaimed author Dr. Patricia McConnell, CAAB, will discuss what she has learned from her clients and from interviews with experts in the shelter and rescue world about how to help families welcome older dogs into their homes. From how to handle the first day to how to handle common behavioral problems, this webinar will help shelter workers, rescue groups, and foster homes in their efforts to keep dogs in the forever homes that they deserve. This free, 60-minute webinar is open to animal welfare professionals, volunteers, and foster parents.
