Renee interviews Kelly Shwiner, a professional dog trainer from West Palm Beach, Florida.  Kelly is a full-time trainer at a shelter and she describes how dogs are temperament tested, and whether those tests are a guarantee for the dog’s future behavior.  Kelly talks about the importance of setting rules immediately when the dog comes into its new home, and why all adopters should learn how to read canine body language.  Today’s program was another good one to hear for those who are thinking of adopting or who have recently adopted a shelter dog.
