Using real life examples of dogs who were at risk due to shelter stress, known behavioral challenges, or a long length of stay, we’ll show you the ins and outs of giving every dog a fair chance at a live outcome using this proven, checklist-based protocol.

Housing young, energetic, intelligent dogs in kennels for 23 hours or more per day indefinitely leads to shelter stress and undesirable behaviors, which can put dogs’ lives on the line. In this interactive webcast, we’ll get into the details of how to make changes to better serve this at-risk population of shelter pets. We’ll talk about real life case studies, show how the process works in one large municipal shelter and answer all your questions about what to do when it seems like there is no good answer. This webcast can be viewed on its own and will be useful to shelter leadership at all levels, as well as volunteers, advocates and anyone else who struggles to save big dogs’ lives.
