Enrichment for Shelter Dogs
Looking for ways to keep dogs in your care mentally healthy? The shelter is a stressful place for animals. Novelty of the environment, the restricted nature of confinement, and a lack of mental and physical stimulation contribute to stress. It's imperative that we keep the dogs in our care mentally as well as physically healthy while they await adoption.
Behavioral and environmental enrichment can go a long way to improve the welfare of shelter dogs and should be considered an integral part of their routine care. This presentation will provide you with a variety of ideas to accomplish this important goal for the dogs being held at your facility as well as in foster care.
This free, 60-minute webinar will benefit anyone working in animal welfare. And bonus! The ideas you learn at the webinar would be perfect to share with adopters — because all animals benefit from mental stimulation in their lives.
This webinar has been approved for 1 CEU for behavior consultants by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT). To receive credit after you watch the full recording, email your CCPDT membership number to ASPCApro with the webinar name. We will submit CCPDT information once per month.
