Adapting Assess-A-Pet Review by Stevie
The first hour & ten minutes of this lecture is a long live demo of Assess-A-Pet evaluations on three surrendered 11-week-old mixed-breed litter mates, but it's really good because they display very strange behaviors and you get to see how the same assessment on different dogs reveals a lot about their real temperament. The last bit of the video discusses using Assess-A-Pet to evaluate owned dogs in private behavior consultations, and includes video footage of a few interviews with some clients and their dogs. I feel like this lecture is a bit looser and more stream-of-consciousness than a lot of Sue's other videos (partly due to technical-puppy-difficulties in the first part) and only touches on what the title implies, but you pick up so much random behavior clues and things you never would have thought of from the live demos, analysis of videos, and Sue's anecdotes that all her videos are worth watching and you learn so much from all of them.

This lecture is from her two-day lecture series at the Fundamentals for Shelter and Rescue conference at Marine Humane Society in Novato, California. The other Sue Sternberg videos from this conference (the videos reference each other because the lectures were given together with the same audience) are "Bite-O-Meter Seminar," "Assess-A-Pet Seminar," and "Making an adoptable dog."
