BEAR Necessities (on-line): In this initial phase of the program, we will be exploring the necessary and foundational concepts for the participants' journey to becoming a shelter behavior professional.... the BEAR Necessities! This set of on-line courses will cover key concepts that include how animals learn and communicate, positive reinforcement-based training and behavior modification, ethics related to sheltering and animal training, and enrichment in the shelter environment, including the implementation of inter-dog interactions.
