Dogspaw Presents Sue Sternberg!


Who? Sue Sternberg has been developing and refining assessment techniques for decades to help shelter workers and trainers determine the likelihood that a dog will engage in aggressive behaviors.  More information on Sue Sternberg’s qualifications can be found here.
