Event Description

Make Informed Decisions about Property-Specific Breed Bans

What should you do as a landlord or apartment manager if your state/local jurisdiction or insurance company has banned certain “aggressive” dog breeds – and you have in-place residents with a named breed, or receive reasonable accommodation requests for disability-related animals on the banned list? Are breed bans a tactic you have (or have considered) employing on your property? And more importantly, are breed bans effective at reducing bites and incidents of attack?

Find out the answers to all these questions (and more)! Bone up on breed bans and “aggressive breeds” in this informative webinar with fair housing advocate Jo Becker. Learn how to make informed decisions and property policies while being mindful of personal safety, general liability, and fair housing liability. Find out the range of breed bans an apartment manager might encounter – along with their role, responsibility, and options in each. Discover how effective breed bans are, and find out the official position of organizations, ranging from animal rights groups to the American Bar Association. Get useful tips on how to read dogs (including warning and welcoming signs), and how to avoid confrontation and attack with an unfamiliar/unfriendly dog on your property.

As a bonus, you’ll also learn some basic “critter communication” principles and body language techniques to help you maintain on-the-job safety for you and your management team – regardless of the kind of animal encountered (pet, service, assistance, etc.), the species (dog, cat, or other), or the breed (banned or otherwise).

After attending this webinar, you will be able to respond appropriately to breed bans imposed by your jurisdiction and/or insurance company, and know what to do if you receive a reasonable accommodation request for such an animal. You will be able to make informed decisions about property-specific breed bans taking into account safety, general liability, and fair housing liability. Plus, you’ll know how to alter your own body language to avoid the likelihood of an attack.
