    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,

    Here's a reminder about the HASS Behavior Job-Alike Meeting this Thursday, where we'll be talking about resource guarding - latest research results, results from the survey some of you completed (thank you, we know its a complicated issue and the survey was challenging to complete), and recommendations. 

    Register for the meeting here.

    Once you register and add the meeting to your calendar, you'll automatically be registered for future monthly meetings.

    Thanks!
