Behavioral Assessment and Rehabilitation of Animal Cruelty Victims

Dogs rescued from cruel conditions, including puppy mills, hoarding situations and dogfighting, run the gamut from friendly, sociable animals to extremely fearful—even feral—creatures. A behavior evaluation proves a useful tool in determining the best possible outcomes for these victims of cruelty. Resilient, social dogs may be ready for immediate placement in new homes. Some of the unsocialized animals come around with time in a rehabilitation program. In some cases, dangerous dogs can be rehabilitated to the degree that they are successfully integrated into society. Attendees of this free, 60-minute webinar will learn:

  • the subtests that make up a comprehensive behavior evaluation
  • the reasons for conducting a behavior evaluation
  • how to identify specific behaviors exhibited during the behavior evaluation
  • the techniques used to rehabilitate fearful, unsocialized dogs
