Bound Angels

A dog in a shelter is almost never the dog it would be in a home, and this is certainly true of Cairns.  Kennel Syndrome is a real and difficult barrier for shelter dogs to overcome.  When a Cairn is rescued by Col. Potter, the two week minimum period of evaluation is essential to give the dog time to feel safe in the home environment so they can show their true personalities.

In this thought provoking video, Robert Cabral speaks at a Symposium at UCLA, giving a clear and insightful explanation of Kennel Syndrome, Barrier Aggression, and the simple but important positive training he is implementing via Bound Angels to help shelters help the dogs in their care, enabling them to find homes when they might otherwise fail in the shelter system.  Great lessons for all who are dedicated to Rescue.

Robert Cabral, Founder and Executive Director of Bound Angels, is an authority on canine behavior and shelter dogs.  His first hand knowledge of shelter behavior, aggression, and dog training is a lifesaver to dogs that have no one to speak for them - Robert speaks for them, sometimes eloquently, oftentimes candidly - but always honestly and always with the intent to make the world a better place for them.  Bound Angels helps animal shelters save more lives through information and knowledge.
