It can be hard to offer adopters, fosters, and pet owners support when you can’t meet them face to face. Learn how you can establish a free Behavior Helpline that allows you to help your community remotely. This webinar will show you how a Behavior Helpline can benefit your shelter, and how you can use the knowledge your shelter already possesses to run this program and assist pet owners in need.

CPDT-KA, Behavior Manager at the Humane Society of Western Montana
Tiff is a CPDT-KA and has been at the HSWM for 5 years. She oversees an all-encompassing behavior program at the HSWM. Tiff is involved in shelter facing programs like enrichment, behavior modification, adoption consultations, and the Behavior Helpline. She also works with the community by leading group classes, puppy kindergarten, and private lessons. Tiff has worked with issues as far ranging as reactivity, litterbox misuse, off leash skills, aggression, fear, and many others. She has found that solving behavior problems in the shelter provides a fountain of knowledge for community pet owners, and vice versa when addressing community pet challenges. Tiff has a soft spot for the "crazy dogs" and has helped with problem behaviors in police dogs and detection dogs. She lives with a 3 year old Dutch Shepherd who has taught her to always be on her toes.
