What is canine behavioral euthanasia, which problems are beyond help, and how can we best support clients or vet/shelter/training staff who are grieving this special kind of loss? Some schools of thought believe that all dogs can be saved, no matter how difficult or dangerous their behavior problems might be. Sadly, this is not true. Some minds are beyond help. The bullying that happens after a canine behavioral euthanasia might cause people grieving such a traumatic loss to lie about what happened to their dog, which makes those of us who have traveled this sad path feel even more alone. Trish and Sue will also touch on the issues around what happens when behavioral euthanasia is not on the table, and how we, as professionals, might help change attitudes and combat bullying in order to better support colleagues and clients. This talk covers: Behavioral euthanasia is a thing, Not everyone supports it, Why we need to change this, How we might change this, What happens when we don’t BE (behavioral euthanisia)?, and, Next steps.
