We all use the term “resource guarding” to describe that dog  who won’t let anyone near the bowl when he’s eating or the one who isn’t going to give up that big rawhide under any circumstances.    In reality “resource guarding,” while not all that uncommon, can be a more far-reaching and complicated behavior.  Thankfully, in the majority of cases it can be just about eradicated or successfully managed.

Pia Silvani’s presentation  will use video and hands-on demonstration to increase both your understanding and ability to recognize the severity of the behavior in an individual dog and design the individualized protocols to modify the behavior.   In addition to extensive work with the dogs in our shelters, Pia has worked with hundreds of private clients.  She is also at the helm of St. Hubert’s new Mutts On The Mend program which shares the expertise of our Training and Behavior Center with our animal welfare colleagues at no charge.

Please join us for this great opportunity to learn more about increasing your abilities to assist the dogs who rely on you in becoming great candidates for adoption!
