This is an archived session from 2019.

Dogs live to play, now let them play to live! Learn how playgroups can enhance quality of life (for both shelter dogs and their caretakers) and adoption matching while helping you to learn much more about your dogs than how they play with other dogs. We've asked 200 shelters that we've worked with internationally about the impact of playgroups, and have heard time and time again how the benefits far outweigh the perceived risks. This presentation is packed with video clips demonstrating how playgroups are a tool that can be used to enhance enrichment, training, assessment and behavior modification, and provide an efficient and effective way to care for even large populations of sheltered dogs.

  • This program has been approved for 1 hour of continuing education credit for NACA members.
