    Hi,

    Behavior Job-Alike meetings are for people interested in animal behavior. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you have have a behavior job!  Register for the meetings here.  Once you finish registration, a screen will pop up that will allow you to save the meeting invite to your calendar. 

    This month in the Behavior Job-Alike meeting on November 18 at 11 am CT, we'll be talking about resource guarding - sharing research and discussing how we manage these dogs.   We'd love for your input on this topic.  Please fill out this survey about resource guarding dogs; it will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The person most familiar with behavior programs at your shelter should complete the survey.  Here's the link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/resourceguarding. 
    If you weren't able to attend the October Behavior Job-Alike meeting where Mara Velez spoke about the least intrusive minimally aversive principle, here's the recording.
    Note that we'll be taking a break in December; our next meeting after November will be January 27. 

    Thanks!
    Sheila

    Hi everyone,

    (almost) Happy New Year! 

    Please join us for our next Behavior Job-Alike Meeting. These meetings are open to anyone and everyone who is interested in behavior. Register here.

    If you missed our November meeting where we talked about dogs who guard resources, here's the recording.  And if you didn't respond to our survey about how shelters manage dogs who guard resources, we'd love to hear from you . We're only looking for one response per organization, so please check to make sure no one else at your org has responded (or email me to ask, sheila@maddiesfund.org). 

    Our January meeting will be on Thurs Jan 27 at 9 am PT/12 pm ET.  Dr. Carley Faughn of Best Friends Animal Society and Morgan  Rivera of the Humane Society of the United States  (bios at the end of this message) will be talking about: Debunking Myths for Dogs that come from Dog Fighting Backgrounds.

    Dog fighting is an underground bloodsport that made its way into mainstream news with the Michael Vick case. Most people in animal welfare have either worked with survivors of dog fighting or heard myths about them. Dr. Carley Faughn and Morgan Rivera will share their experiences with survivors and aim to debunk some of the many myths that surround these dogs. They will share their experiences using pictures, videos, and firsthand testimonials. There is a need for more data and research to prove what they know to be true: these are simply dogs that come from a tough background but deserve to be treated the same way as any other dog that finds themselves in the care of animal welfare professionals. Mainly, each dog should be treated as individuals to understand who they are and what their likes and dislikes are so that animal welfare professionals can find safe placement for them within a community.  

    Bios:
    Dr. Carley Faughn has worked with canines, felines, and nonhuman primates since 2007 merging her passion for comparative cognition, animal welfare, and animal rescue. Dr. Faughn is the Senior Strategist of Research for Lifesaving Programs at Best Friends Animal Society. She focuses on solving for advanced behavior challenges for dogs and works with teams to develop lifesaving behavior modification models for shelters across the country. She also develops and implements applied animal behavior research, initially focusing on large dogs and saving those most at risk nationwide. Dr. Faughn consults with various teams within Best Friends Animal Society and with Best Friends' Network Partners across the country to develop creative wellness and enrichment plans and to facilitate teachings about animal behavior and cognition. Dr. Faughn has held various roles within Best Friends from Dogtown Manager to Senior Manager of Animal Care, to her current position focusing on applied research within the lifesaving scope. Before coming to Best Friends Animal Society, Dr. Faughn served as Executive Director of Acadiana Animal Aid (AAA) in Lafayette, LA for three years and while completing her PhD at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (Cognitive Science, 2014). 

    Morgan Rivera has been involved in animal welfare since 2003 and has held various positions from volunteer to Shelter Manager and nearly everything in between. She has started Pet Safety Net Programs, worked as a relief vet tech, and managed a large non-profit, low cost veterinary clinic. She earned her CPDT-KA in 2018, is a member of IAABC's Shelter Affiliate Division, and is set to graduate with her Master's in Shelter Medicine in the spring of 2022. After being a longtime volunteer for the Humane Society of the United States she joined the staff in 2017 and has held various roles in her time with them, including managing their temporary shelters, responding to natural disasters, and acting as a consultant for shelters that have sought the expertise of HSUS's Animal Rescue and Response Team.

    Join the HASS Behavior Job-Alike group on Thursday March 31st at 9 am PT/noon ET, where we'll be talking about Keeping Pets in Homes with Post-Adoption Behavior Support. We have some amazing speakers joining us: Camille Circe-Perrault, SPCA of Montreal; Kait Hembree and Allie Mayer, GoodPup; Aimee Sadler, Dogs Playing for Life and Canine Center Florida, and Tiff Shao, Humane Society of Western Montana.

    A recent survey revealed that 62% of shelters either don't have, are just getting started or would benefit from improvement of their post-adoption follow-up programs.  In this session, we'll be talking about how different organizations are working to  keep different types of pets in homes by supporting adopters after they take their pet home. If you have something that you're really happy with related to following up with your adopters, we'd love to hear about what you're doing during this meeting.

    If you're already registered, you don't need to re-register.  Here's the link, if you haven't joined us before:  https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYrf-ytrzwqH9KGvJ5S3iuOCSFGLEFM5cJK  

     

    Please share this event with people who might be interested. Everyone is welcome!

    Hi Sheila, 

    I was only able to join for about about 1/2 of yesterday's call but I did notice it was recorded. Do you have a rough time frame on when the recording will be available? This topic and Tiff's portion specifically is very in line with obstacles my shelter is having and I'd like to share the recorded discussion with my Long Stay Task Force here. Thank you so much!

    Maddie's Fund Staff
    Posted 02-10-2022 03:30 PM
    Hi everyone,
    For the next three months, in the HASS Behavior job-alike, i'm excited to announce that we'll be focusing on ways to keep pets out of shelters by providing behavior support to our communities. This month, on February 24 at 9 am PT/noon ET, we'll be talking about: Keeping Pets in Homes by Providing Behavior Support to the Community.  
    Here's more info about this month's meeting, and our wonderful speakers:

    Description: During this meeting, learn from successful organizations about innovative and effective ways to provide behavior support and keep dogs and cats in homes and out of shelters. You'll learn about Marin Humane and Paws for Life K9 Rescue's programs and things like tips for getting started, building demand for service among the people you're trying to reach, and how their programs operate. We'll also talk about providing humane outcomes for situations where people can't keep their pet and shelter intake clearly won't help.  

     Virginia Grainger found her way to positive reinforcement dog training like many people, because she had a challenging dog.  A consultation with Dawn Kovell quickly led to Virginia becoming a volunteer with Marin Humane in 2001.  Shortly thereafter she was training all the volunteers in the Behavior Department.  As time went on Virginia joined the staff and became an Instructor, Volunteer Coordinator, Evaluator, Consultant and a few more positions. Some of the many initials Virginia can put after her name include, B.A, J.D., CPDT-KA, CBA I & II. Virginia is the Marin Humane Shelter Behavior Manager and oversees canine evaluations, adoption dog consultations and is also teaching classes and doing private consultations. Virginia currently shares her home with her husband Jason and her 100% Marin Humane dog pack, which currently is made up of one Old English Sheepdog/German Shepherd mix, two Australian Shepherds and one 7 pound Chihuahua, who really runs the show.

    Alex Tonner adopted a baby pit bull in 2009. She named him "Ziggy" because his tail zig-zagged; it was bent out of shape as the result of the abuse and neglect he had endured in a backyard before being rescued. Ziggy's brother was missing part of his nose. As Alex watched Ziggy transform into a loyal and loving family member, she knew she could help other dogs like him find the homes they deserved. Alex spent many years volunteering for dog rescues, and along the way, she learned that the dogs could help people just as much as the people could help the dogs. She helped implement the "Paws For Life" prison program in 2014 at the California State Prison in Lancaster. The program was originally designed to be a simple dog-training program for incarcerated men in a federal penitentiary–the first of its kind at a maximum-security prison. Tonner and other volunteers would drive groups of dogs from overpopulated shelters in Los Angeles to the prison to get trained for 10 weeks at a time. The program transformed the lives of both the incarcerated dog-trainers and the dogs: the men prepared the dogs for adoption, and the dogs made life inside the prison a bit better. As the program's reputation grew, "Paws for Life" became its own non-profit and its trainers became certified to train shelter dogs to serve as service animals for war veterans suffering from PTSD. Among her many accomplishments, Alex prides herself on the fact that so many men who have been through the Paws for Life prison program now have been released on account of their work with the shelter dogs. Paws For Life continues to grow apace, with six programs running in three different prisons. Through Paws For Life, she has also coordinated large animal rescue efforts following national disasters such as Hurricane Harvey. Through the organization, she hopes to change the ways animals are treated throughout the world. Ziggy has no idea, but many dogs and humans have better lives thanks to him and the love he inspired in Alex.

    Jon Grobman is the director of programs for Paws For Life K9 Rescue. In his role as director, Jon oversees the training programs inside 3 California state prisons and the People and Pet Innovation Center . Jon brings with him, 8 years of dog training experience, including training service dogs for military veterans with PTSD. Jon is an experienced teacher who has taught hundreds of group classes for all levels, many workshops and seminars. Jon is passionate about strengthening the human-animal bond and focuses heavily on observation to create enriching training programs for individual dogs. Jon studied Dog Emotion and Cognition at Duke University, and is an AKC Certified Evaluator. Jon's hands-on experience overseeing the training of hundreds of dogs has played a valuable role in him gaining the necessary skills to oversee such a large program. In his spare time, Jon trains his Belgian Malinois who is fluent in more than 60 commands, and is often by Jon's side and seminars and speaking engagements.

    Hello!
    Our next behavior job-alike meeting is this Thursday, Feb 24 at 9 am PT where we'll be talking about preventing behavior intake by supporting our communities.

We'll also talk about providing humane outcomes for situations where people can't keep their pet and shelter intake clearly won't help.

    Hi everyone,

    Here's the recording from our April 28 behavior job-alike meeting continued with our discussion about community based behavior support, where we heard about amazing programs and resources from:

    1.     Miranda Hitchcock, CPDT-KA, Founder @ Every Dog Behavior and Training , talked about supporting private clients and talking through emergency situations with clients

    2.     Lynn Olenik, Executive Director at Humane Animal Welfare Society of Waukesha County, talked about growing a support program on a shoestring budget and meeting the community's needs

    3.     Camille Circe-Perrault, Animal Welfare Manager - Behavior, SPCA of Montreal talked about their behavior support program

    4.     Rhea Moriarity, Director of Shelter and Clinic Operations, Longmont Humane, talked about their Returned Adoption template and how they use it (keeping track of adoption success, the template is an attachment to this message)

    5.     Amy Carver, CBCC-KA, Dog Behavior Follow Up (DBFU) Supervisor, Austin Pets Alive!, talked about APA's Dog Behavior Follow Up program (over 2300 emails per month!)   and data tracking.

    If you have any questions about the topics covered during our job-alike meetings, we'd love to discuss them here!  Here's notes from our meeting. Apologies that i'm not the best notetaker while i'm hosting a meeting. If anyone wants to volunteer to take notes during these meetings, i'd love your help!


    In case you missed them, here's the recordings from February and March, our other two sessions about community based behavior support.

    We hope you can join us for our next meeting on Thursday, May 26 at 9 am PT. We'll be talking about assessing dog behavior over the next few months. How do we meet dogs' needs and safely place dogs in homes if behavior assessment tests aren't good at predicting the occurrence of aggressive behavior in home environments? 

    Hope you can join us! If you're not registered for the behavior job-alike, you can register here.

    Hi everyone,
     
    Our next Behavior Job-Alike is Thursday May 26 at 9 am PT.  I'll be leading our discussion about behavior assessments. During this meeting, we'll be talking about how we responded to this survey (it's not too late to respond if you haven't) and options for paths forward in assessing dog behavior.  Please be ready to chat as tomorrow's meeting is a discussion and not a formal presentation.
    I encourage you to review the results in advance, so you have time to think about things before we
