This pilot study from Sighthound Sanctuary & Animal Services will evaluate the effects of implementing a Fearful Dog Treatment Program on dog behavior and rescue staff perception of fearful dogs at a single rescue organization. The researchers hypothesize that dogs will show less fearful behavior after going through the program and rescue staff will have increased ratings of the adoptability of fearful dogs.
