Session Two: Join Dogs Playing For Life (DPFL) CEO/Founder @Aimee Sadler to share what they learned in their practical application of the science around behavior evaluations. They moved away from battery tests quite some time ago, opting to observe and record behavior via checkpoint systems throughout a dog's stay in the shelter (the Longmont Humane Society). Their lifesaving increased and length of stay decreased as they learned to work "smarter" while prioritizing quality of life for the dogs and their caretakers!
