"""For shelter behavior programs, where the focus is on moving animals most efficiently through from intake to adoption, it makes sense to take advantage of all reasonably available behavior modification tools. These include social learning-based training processes, which have proven effective in the socialization of moderately to severely fearful shelter animals. This presentation outlines procedures incorporating the use of socialized conspecifics in the behavior modification of fearful shelter cats. At the end of this session, learners will be able to: - Identify candidates among shelter cats who would benefit from socialization exercises that incorporate “helper cats” - Implement specific social learning-based training exercises that result in interaction with handlers"""
