Behavior Evaluations for Rehoming

Behavior Evaluations for Rehoming

Course Information:

Many, if not most, shelters do behavior evaluations these days. Some of them are almost painfully short, because of population problems. For those shelters with available time and controllable populations, there are longer, more comprehensive evals. We will go through the series of tests for these kinds of evaluations, and discuss their use both in shelters and in private practices.
