Good Boy Dog School
Kendal Shepherd, BVSc., CCAB, MRCVS
‘Dangerous Dog? How would your dog cope with a DDA behavioural assessment? How to avoid you and your dog being ‘caught’ up in a ‘court’ case!’
Thursday 5th November 2015
7:00 – 10:00pm
1st Barnet Scout Hut
Priory Grove, off Westcombe Drive, Barnet, Herts.
Kendal Shepherd is a veterinary surgeon, certified clinical animal behaviourist, expert witness on the assessment of dogs and their behaviour for many of the court and police cases in the UK, the author of “The Canine Commandments” and “Keeping ourselves safe around dogs”, an educational dog bite prevention resource published by ASAB.
Kendal is actively involved in a vet/medic ‘One Health’ co-operative approach, which considers dog bites as a public health issue. As such, they need investigation for cause, rather than prosecution of owners considered at fault.
Kendal Shepherd qualified from Bristol University in 1978. With extensive experience in small animal practice, she was the first veterinary surgeon to be accredited by ASAB as a certificated clinical animal behaviourist in 2005. She is currently heavily involved in the behavioural assessment of dogs for the Courts under both sections 1 and 3 of the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991.
The evening will focus on a summary of the contexts in which legal cases arise, how they are assessed and how to avoid a dog being considered ‘dangerous’
