Identifying and Managing Food Guarding
About this Webinar
Learn how to identify food guarding behavior using the ASPCA SAFER™ canine aggression assessment, and hear about the findings of a national survey on what shelters are currently doing with food guarding dogs. You can listen to this webinar at your convenience, any time 24/7.
By the end of this webinar, you can develop an understanding about:
- The kinds of support these dogs need post-adoption
- Using a behavior modification program either in shelter or in foster home to save more lives
- When to place some food guarders directly into homes without behavior modification
- How fosters can adopt out these dogs directly from their homes, saving shelter resources and saving lives.
This webinar will benefit anyone working in animal welfare, dog training, veterinary clinics, foster care and animal behavior consultation.
