What do you do when you are faced with a pet caught in a divorce?
What is the right approach since dogs are not kids nor are they objects?
I’m Karis, a Certified Dog Behaviour Consultant, Mediator and Pet Custody Specialist.
I educate the legal community on how to understand the needs of the pets so that the correct pet custody agreement can be reached.
Understanding how the environment affects dogs should be what guides a pet custody agreement.
I teach how to understand and approach:
Online training course
My online training course is specifically designed for mediators, lawyers and judges who deal with pet custody. This course offeres an eye-opening and insightful journey into what it means to look after the best interest of family pets involved in a divorce.
What course graduates have to say
"After 21-plus-years as a Child Custody Recommending Counselor / Mediator, the issue of what happens with the family pet is one that, not unexpectedly, comes up relatively often. While the effect of separation and/or divorce on Children, and the associated moving between homes, is a well-researched area, the effect on "Fido" has barely been addressed. Yes, we all love and adore our "fur-babies," but they are, in fact, not human and should not be treated as such. They are also, though, not inanimate possessions and property, devoid of reactions to what is taking place around them, as the laws still tend to treat them. Karis fills the void of information regarding what happens to the family pet, from a behavioral standpoint, when there has been a separation between Owners/Guardians. If you work in the field of Child Custody and/or Pet Custody, or if you're going through a separation and you want to know what's best for your shared family pet, Karis's classes are a must-take.
"I loved this training! Your Pet Custody Webinar was fascinating and not only will I use the information and guidance you provided in my mediation practice, I now have a whole new level of understanding of my beloved pup. I highly recommend this training to anyone interested in Pet behavior, not just to those of us who will be helping families make difficult decisions regarding their pets."
