WEBINAR: IS THIS A GOOD TIME? Evaluations, Assessments & Functionality

This webinar will encourage you to think about assessments and testing in deeper ways, including knowing what you need to know, defining your criteria, and scaling the responses and behaviors you observe.

When we carefully assess function as a reflection of well-being, we have a better sense of how that dog is doing.
