From the back cover:
“Thousands of unwanted dogs enter shelters and animal rescue groups each year. Some have detailed histories provided by the families who surrendered them, and others arrive with little to no background information.
The challenge for caretakers is to determine which dogs are safe to be placed, and create a comprehensive personality profile of these dogs that can be used to match them with the best possible new homes.
Dog professionals specializing in training and behavior are often called upon to help assess dogs for not only shelter and rescue organizations but also for families needing to re-home their dogs.
This video provides start-to-finish instructions for completing an assessment that is safe for the handler, fair to the dog, and has excellent predictability of future behavior. All support materials are provided, including a resource guarding scale and evaluation form.”
