This talk will focus on the ASPCA’s groundbreaking work at our Behavioral Rehabilitation Center (BRC), a facility dedicated to the recovery and study of fearful, undersocialized dogs, most from cruelty cases. Attendees will learn about problematic behaviors commonly seen in these dogs, the BRC’s behavior modification and enrichment program, and our recently published research on the program’s efficacy. In addition to sharing our research design and findings, we’ll discuss discoveries made over a decade of working with this unique population of dogs, show video footage, and include time for Q&A.
