Purpose: If you are in rescues and fostering only because you love dogs….it is not enough. This course provides those who foster rescue dogs the information and skills needed to ensure a successful transition for rescue dogs from the streets to their forever homes.
Course Information: There is a need for foster/rescue dog homes to become more educated and have the appropriate skills and environment to successfully foster dogs. Many foster and rescue dogs have dog aggression, people aggression, fears, anxiety, or phobias. Rescue homes must be able to provide the appropriate environment for these dogs (i.e., other dogs and humans in the home); they must have the knowledge and skills to address their behavior issues; AND the confidence and leadership in their own actions to help these dogs overcome their behavior issues. The quicker and more successfully rescue dogs can move into their forever homes, the more openings there can be for more dogs to be rescued and taken out of the shelters and homed forever.
This course has many videos that clearly demonstrate the concepts and methods important to master when working with rescue or shelter dogs. There are 3 quizzes to access knowledge for those seeking credit or CEU’s.
