Sealing the deal: Adoption event best practices
What do we know about the best-practices of off-site adoption events? As it turns out, not much! By hosting 1 year of experimental adoption events in the community, we answered several questions about how to best conduct such events. We also provide data on the behavior of adopters during events and assess how the behavior of the dogs alters the behavior of adopters. These data will be used to establish best-practices for off-site adoption events and to identify target behaviors for the training of dogs housed at shelters.
