Livestock Guardian Dogs - What You Need to Know for Your Aggression Cases
Erin Williams, CPDT, MDI presents on LGDs and aggression!
Livestock Guardian Dog (LGD) numbers in rescue, shelters and sanctuaries are increasing. Euthanasia is often the end result, with the most common reason given, as aggression. With a better understanding of the characteristics and needs of these breeds, we can reduce this dire trend. As animal handlers, trainers, carers and clinicians we can learn to work safely and successfully with these breeds and offer better education for their owners or prospective owners.

Motivations, behaviors, and their consequences!
