With the high number of dogs being surrendered to shelters, pounds and Councils, it’s imperative that each dog be assessed and profiled accordingly, and correctly, to assist in the process of re-homing, rehabilitation and for court purposes as required. In order to correctly assess these dogs, the person assessing must be trained and well-versed in conducting these assessments.
This course is for anyone interested in learning how to perform behavioural assessments correctly in dogs and is ideal for anyone in shelter and rescue workers, as well as Council Animal Management Officers, dog trainers and anyone interested in learning to assess dogs.
The course covers the following topics:
- The assessment environment
- Different types of assessments and what they should include
- Assessment tools and materials
- How to assess and understand what you are looking at
- Dog behaviour, personality and instinctive traits
- Writing up an assessment

The course can be tailored to suit your organisation’s needs and can include some or all of the listed topic items as required.
