Ever wonder why we see the same dogs in rescue over and over? Why does a dog get adopted and returned? Our theory is that the system is designed to fail. Dogs are being picked up as strays and adopted out without any form of rehabilitative training. When they develop "issues" after adoption they are returned to the shelter or strayed again. Then they are once again adopted out (still without benefit of any rehab training) and returned. Some dogs end up being euthanized as "unadoptable" after being returned too many times.

Why are dogs being deemed "unadoptable" when no one has tried to fix their "issues"?

What are the holes in the rescue system, and how would proper rehabilitative training help to plug them?

How and why is the system failing these animals?

On today's show we will be talking with behavioral trainer Chris White owner of K9 Revolution and founder of Biker's Against BSL about these questions, and how proper training keeps dogs in homes.
