In this episode, we discuss who makes the decision - the vet, the trainer, or the pet owner; how behavioral euthanasia is an "active choice" rather than a default decision - there is no formula, and this isn’t something that someone has to do because of a specific behavior pattern or problem, but rather an option that may be actively chosen due to safety or quality of life concerns that aren’t able to be mitigated; how professionals can support and guide pet owners through the process; the issues of guilt and shame associated with deciding to euthanize an otherwise healthy dog; and the importance of self-care and good boundaries.
