Resocialization of rescue dogs
What does resocialization / re-socialization mean and what are the ways to re-socialize dogs? Ute Heberer will show possible ways how to help the dogs and their people. But it also shows the limits of this work. She gives insights into her work with difficult dogs, for which she received the Hessian Animal Welfare Award in 2013. We learn what behavior dogs show that come into such a program based on numbers, data and facts, and how the behavior of dogs changes over time. Not all of these dogs are able to live in a normal household after the program. Why this is so and much more information is available in this lecture with many impressive pictures and films from her work.
