Ian and Kelly Dunbar Discuss Dog Training and Shelter Enrichment

Eric Goebelbecker on May 18, 2011

This week the IAABC Podcast has 2 very special guests: Ian and Kelly Dunbar!

Ian is currently touring the U.S. talking about Science-Based Dog Training (with Feeling), and I asked him a few questions about that talk, including what led to the content and the title. Kelly is working hard this year to promote and implement Open Paw, a humane education program she co-founded to help keep animals of shelters or, if need be, help make them more adoptable when they end up there. We discussed Open Paw shelters and how enrichment programs can be used to keep shelter dogs occupied and make them better adoption candidates.

You can find both Ian’s and Kelly’s blogs over at Dog Star Daily. For more information about Ian’s current seminars, click here. For more information on Open Paw, click here.
