Dog Daycare: Fights, Bites and Injuries

Friday, March 09, 2018 11:00 am–12:00 pm German Suite

How common are fights between dogs in an off-leash play setting? Is it a normal, everyday part of running a daycare or is it something that indicates negligence of your staff? In this session, you will learn how to tell the difference. Both daycare owners and their staff will benefit from this session to better understand how to minimize the risk of dog bites and fights in your off-leash playgroups, how to reduce your costs if veterinarian treatment is required, when to dismiss a dog from daycare (to avoid a fight or because of one), the tools to use to help break up a fight without injury, and the steps to take after a fight happens.
