He’s also been called upon by attorneys to give expert testimony in court cases (such as dog bite cases) or to assist in court rescues (saving dogs that may be put to sleep by order of the court). In addition, government agencies have requested his help in setting up Dog Bite Prevention Programs. Here is a sampling of some of the media appearences he has made.
