by Sue Sternberg
New Testing and Assessment Methods for Shelters and Trainers!
Sue Sternberg has been developing and refining assessment techniques for decades to help shelter workers and trainers determine the likelihood that a dog will engage in aggressive behaviors. Assessing Aggression Thresholds in Dogs includes Sue s newest protocols based on the theory that sociability is the key predictor of a dog s potential for aggression. In addition to a number of step-by-step tests for shelter workers to use, Sue has included a section for trainers and behaviorists for use in home visitations to better design training and management programs for their clients.
