Bad To the Bone: Analyzing and Assessing Dog Bites
Cara Shannon

**Please Note: Disc #1 is the DVD and Disc #2 is the CD.

Anyone dealing with aggressive dogs, shelter dogs, or investigating dog bites will find this DVD invaluable. It explains the dog-human and dog-dog bite hierarchies with thorough descriptions of the bites, mitigating and aggravating factors (and other factors) using photographs, charts, case studies and analysis notes.

Understanding the potential damage a dog is likely to do in future aggressive incidents is one of the most important skills you can have when working with behavior problems. Building on the work begun by Dr. Ian Dunbar in categorizing dog bites through the use of a linear hierarchy and consulting with a veterinary behaviorist, emergency room veterinarian, emergency room physician, general practice physician, and many experts in the field of canine behavior, Cara Shannon presents comprehensive bite hierarchies for analyzing bites to humans and bites to other dogs. She then uses photos and case studies to help consultants gain fluency in applying the hierarchy to actual cases and bites.

Included on the CD:
* Hierarchy Charts and Note Cards
* Case Studies and Analysis Notes
* Sample Veterinary Release Forms
* Sample History Forms
