The pandemic has resulted in many more households adopting and rescuing pets. With more people working from home, the interest in adding a pet to the household has significantly increased. Dog Trainers and Behavior Consultants are slammed with cases from newbie pet owners to dogs biting in the home. Shelters and rescue groups have been working double time to match families with dogs in need while trying to offer post-adoption support at a rate higher than ever before. We thought this would be a good time to talk about shelter behavior with Trish McMillan in a 3-part webinar series. With two decades of involvement in animal sheltering in three countries, including nearly 8 years with the ASPCA, Trish has worked with a wide variety of shelter behavior issues. Her shelter work includes intakes, enrichment, rehabilitation, assessment, adoptability criteria-setting, and post-adoption support. Part 3 - Is it all 'how they are raised?' The other important things that influence a dog's behavior "There are no bad dogs, only bad owners." Perhaps you have said this yourself. But think about this: sometimes a professional trainer can raise a dog from birth and still have to deal with some pretty profound behavior problems. And many animal victims of cruelty can recover from past neglect and abuse to become friendly and outgoing, once they realize those bad times are in the rear-view mirror. What else influences behavior, beyond training and lived experience? REGISTRATION: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/shelter-behavior-webinar-series-with-trish-mcmillan-tickets-154143600659
