ASPCApro Webinar – Helping Adopted Dogs Adjust to New Homes

Everyone in shelter and rescue work wants the dogs in their care to go to stable homes. However, there are very few resources for people who are adopting adolescent or adult dogs into their familiesmost of the information written for new owners is about adopting a puppyand things don’t always go as smoothly as hoped.

In this webinar, critically acclaimed author, Dr. Patricia McConnell, CAAB, will discuss what she has learned from her clients and from interviews with experts in the shelter and rescue world about how to help families welcome older dogs into their homes. From how to handle the first day, to handling common behavioral problems, this webinar will help shelter workers, rescue groups, and foster homes in their efforts to keep dogs in the forever homes they deserve.
