We are hosting another virtual webinar!

Thursday, August 25th at 6:30 – 8:00 pm

An Ounce of Prevention: Behavior Edition

Speaker:  Meredith Stepita, DVM, DACVB

A perfect webinar if you are considering adopting a new dog or have just brought home a new pup during the pandemic!  

Behavior problems are one of the most common reasons that dogs are surrendered to shelters because they can be challenging, frustrating, and at times dangerous.  Wouldn’t it be great if we knew how to prevent them from happening in the first place! As with many medical problems, it is often easier and less time-consuming to prevent rather than treat behavior problems.  During this webinar we will discuss how to choose the right pet for your family, the difference between behaviorists and trainers, preparing pets for the arrival of a baby, review the primary socialization period, and touch on “Happy Veterinary Visits” as well as preventing separation-related problems.

Dr. Stepita is a veterinarian that is a boarded Behavior Specialist.  She will guide you through her background and how she helps dedicated pet parents like yourselves navigate these issues.  Most importantly, she will give you tips and practical solutions to prevent the most common behaviors from occurring in the first place.  This will be a valuable webinar to attend if you are a new pet parent (or lives with someone who is!) or a veteran that might be facing a change in your lifestyle or your pet’s that could impact behavior.

This webinar is a free event but registration will be limited.  Please register early for this live event!  Please consider donating here to support our mission of educating communities on how to prevent or reduce illness in pets.

Thank you to Vetoquinol for sponsoring this webinar and helping to offset our costs!

SAGE Compassion for Animals is looking forward to hosting an in-person event that will be fun and fabulous sometime in 2022!  We received our 501(c)(3) status just when the Shelter-In-Place order was issued in 2020 – so we had to put all of our great ideas on hold for now until we can gather safely with donors and community members.  We will keep you posted if you sign up for our email list below!

If you have any great ideas that we could implement or connections to share with us, please contact us and our Executive Director would be happy to discuss them!
