“Please join us for a free webcast, The Best Medicine: Playing with
Shelter Dogs with Dr. Brenda Griffin, on Thursday, October 2, 2014,
at 9 PM Eastern.”

As we all know, dogs and games go together, but did you know that
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 feel better. These dogs then
make a better impression on adopters and transition to their adoptive
home more easily. But play isn’t all fun and games! It’s important
for shelter staff to design and implement such programs appropriately
to get the most benefit from them.

Please join us for a free webcast, The Best Medicine: Playing with
Shelter Dogs with Dr. Brenda Griffin, on Thursday, October 2, 2014,
at 9 PM Eastern.

This will be a 90 minute presentation including time for audience Q&A
at the conclusion.

Attendees will learn:

– What constitutes healthy canine play
– Why it is crucial for good health and well-being
– Different types of play with an emphasis on dog-human play
– How to “prescribe” play for enrichment and as a component of
therapy for dogs with common behavior problems in the shelter
