Due to the severity of behavior Blanca has presented in shelter, she is not an appropriate candidate for SAFER at this time. The behavior department recommends Blanca be placed in an experienced foster home who can provide a period of decompression to aid in acclimation to a new environment. Force-free, reward based training is advised when introducing/exposing Blanca to new and unfamiliar situations. We advise seeking guidance from a professional trainer/behaviorist to assist in a behavioral plan for Blanca to help her thrive and succeed.
