Many of the dogs that end up being rehomed, considered for “career change,” or placed in shelters are declared to “need a job.” But how do you know if a dog is really qualified for a job? How do you assess WHAT job that dog may excel at? And how do you help match the dog with working dog organizations? Are there any working dog organizations that are even LIMA-based? In this (panel or dog-based demo), you’ll learn what qualities help or hurt a dog’s potential to succeed in a given detection dog field and how to help match that dog with an organization or handler. This talk is well-suited to attendees who work in shelter behavior or assist clients with difficult decisions regarding rehoming dogs.
