  Description of Seminar/Conference

ASPCA SAFER is a seven item aggression assessment that identifies the dog's comfort level with restraint and touch, reaction to new experiences including movement and sound stimuli, bite inhibition, behavior around food and toys, and arousal level towards other dogs. The dog's behavioral response to these assessment items and the organization's Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) determine the next steps to be taken with the dog.

Shelters that employ SAFER or other research-based behavior assessments report fewer aggression complaints, more adoptions, and better client interactions. Shelters and rescue groups are more able to accurately communicate to the adopter about what they should expect, and how best to manage, a dog in their home.
