)-- E-Training for Dogs, the most extensive online dog training educational site on the Internet and provider of a wide selection of webinars for the dog owner, dog trainer, breeder and canine enthusiast, announces a new ground breaking seminar designed to help shelter, rescue and foster family individuals prepare their rescued dogs for more successful adoptions, and a chance to win the free online seminar, ‘Working with Shelter or Rescue Dogs: When Love Isn’t Enough.’
The new online seminar ‘Working with Shelter or Rescue Dogs: When Love Isn’t Enough,’ is designed to new help shelter, rescue and foster personnel learn to become more educated with the appropriate skills and ideal environment to successfully help dogs achieve a better chance of finding their forever home.
The course has several videos that clearly demonstrate the concepts and methods important to master when working with rescue or shelter dogs, along with three quizzes to access knowledge for those seeking credit or CEU’s.
“The more quickly and successfully rescue and shelter dogs can move into their forever homes, the more openings there can be for more dogs to be rescued and taken out of the shelters and re-homed,” indicates Dr. Cheryl Aguiar, founder of E-TrainingForDogs.com.
“Many foster and rescue dogs have dog aggression, people aggression, fears, anxiety, stress and/or phobias from being sheltered, and because of this many rescue individuals need to help these dogs have a better chance at adoption,” added Aguiar. “Through our online seminar we are sharing tested and proven knowledge and skills for them to acquire the confidence and leadership in their own actions to help these dogs overcome their behavior issues for more successful adoptions.”
In addition to the release of the new online seminar, shelter, rescue and foster individuals will have an opportunity to join E-Training For Dog on Facebook and sign up to receive one free, simple five minute idea to get a dog adopted 50% faster; as well as enter for a chance to win a free ‘Working with Shelter or Rescue Dogs: When Love Isn’t Enough,’ online seminar.
