About the Webinar

Pet custody is a touchy subject. It is all too easy for the dog or cat’s well-being to get lost in the divorce process. The needs of the animals themselves can very easily get confused with the wants of the people involved and, sometimes, what seems like a good solution initially does not benefit the animals or the family, in the long-term.

This webinar is designed to give you practical tools when dealing with pet custody/guardianship. The session is presented from the perspective of the animals, themselves. Karis brings to the table a wealth of knowledge about, and experience with, pet behavior, pet owners, and divorce. Questions will be welcomed at the end of the program.
