As advocates, our voices can have a profound impact on the future of adoptable dogs. Making a shift away from the “people suck” mentality is crucial towards making progress as a “movement”. Gaining an understanding of dog behavior can help us better meet the needs of the adopting public.
We also have a responsibility to disseminate accurate information about dog behavior. This can help keep families together and help adoptions stick. It can also relieve stress for shelter dogs awaiting their second chance, because we can adjust our expectations and avoid causing more harm than good to stressed out animals. Understanding that our goals can be better achieved by gaining more knowledge ourselves is a critical piece of this complex puzzle.
This short mini-course is designed to get advocates thinking and conversations going about what comes next, as advancements occur and new information arises. The resource section is meant to be added to with resources suggested by students where appropriate.
