Laura Garber, CPDT-KA has built behavior programs for the Philadelphia SPCA and in this webinar she teaches the 3 simple exercises that will greatly increase a dog’s chances of getting successfully adopted and once adopted – remain in the home.
Using video demonstrations of her working with dogs in a shelter, Laura will teach you:
- how to train companion behaviors
- how to give a dog greater ease around human hands
- and how to teach a dog impulse control.
Laura strongly believes that these 3 exercises are the most crucial when it comes to giving shelter dogs the skills they need to become successful, loved companions.
Once in the shelter system, animals can often find themselves repeat “offenders,” returned to shelters again and again. By learning 3 simple exercises you can literally save a dog’s life. By teaching him the skills needed to break the cycle, you can help him successfully remain in a loving home.
Whether you are working with a dog that is actually in a shelter, currently in a foster home, or one who has recently been adopted, teaching the dog these 3 exercises can greatly increase the chances that the dog will stay with an owner and greatly lessen its chances of being returned
