In this two-interview episode, Ben chats with Jennifer Fritz, Ph.D., BCBA-D and Steven Payne, Ph.D., BCBA-D about their respective Cat Labs! Drs. Fritz and Payne implement function-based treatments with shelter cats and dogs who engage in behaviour that prevents them from being adopted and often results in them being put down.
