The Best Medicine: Playing With Shelter Dogs

Play, particularly play with humans, can reduce stress and improve behavioral and physical wellness for dogs in animal shelters. Games like tag and hide and seek can help dogs with poor impulse control, jumpy/mouthy dogs, shy or anxious dogs, and dogs with kennel stress feel better. These dogs then make a better impression on adopters, and transition to their adoptive home more easily. This webcast is scheduled for October 2, 2014 at 9 PM Eastern.
