Talk by Amber Batson on Stress in dogs
Mabledon , Southborough, Tunbridge Wells
Why Worry? Stress in dogs, the causes, recognition and what you can do.
This one day seminar is suitable for both owners and dog professionals including vet nurses and vets. It will look at the most common causes of stress in dogs – what really is stress in dogs and what are the possible outcomes including unwanted behaviour development such as excessive barking or even aggression, and its contribution to certain medical disorders such as allergies, infections and perception of pain. Recognising stress in dogs needs a good understanding of body language too, so the morning of this seminar will have a good look at the most up to date understanding of dog communication.
The number of dogs developing behaviour problems that result in a breakdown in the pet-owner relationship, re-homing, and sadly even euthanasia, is constantly on the increase. The afternoon of this seminar will explore practical options of what we can do to alleviate the stress in our dog’s lives, helping to both prevent and to resolve behaviour issues.
