Shelters that I have worked with have cut their long-stay dog population by as much as 24% in under 3 months. I can help virtually and in person.


Virtual Workshops:

All Virtual Workshops are “Pay What You Can” after the webinar takes place. 

Busting Barriers – Do you have a population of dogs that seem “stuck” in your system? This systematic method for identifying and overcoming barriers to adoption can help you get your dogs placed faster and safer.

The Perfect Fit – Are too many dogs being returned for not being the right fit for an adopter? Learn how to implement an automated “matchmaking” system to help guide your adopters to the best matches for their lifestyles.

Playgroups & Personality – Go beyond general categorizations of dog sociability and learn how to better help your organization’s dogs through one of the most valuable enrichment activities you can offer.

Aside from these webinars, you can also book time to discuss specific dogs that are “stuck” in your system!


In Person:

In person workshops are “Pay What You Can”, however any applicable travel/lodging and possibly petsitting fees will need to be paid by the shelter. Contact me for details.

Every organization has their own needs and implementation will look different at every shelter/rescue. Therefore all in-person Workshops are customized to the needs of the organization.

Busting Barriers Advanced WorkshopGet in-depth, customized help implementing Busting Barriers principles into your shelter/rescue.

The Perfect Fit Advanced Workshop – Create and implement an automated matchmaking program for your shelter/rescue.

Playgroups & Personality Advanced Workshop – Create and implement a playgroup program or systematize your current program to better understand the dogs’ personalities and needs. Learn techniques for making your borderline dogs more successful in playgroups. 


I can also help:

  • assess specific dogs and create behavior plans that can be implemented by existing staff/volunteers/fosters
  • train staff/volunteers simple training and handling techniques that keep dogs and humans safe
  • work with specific dogs on-site
