Stress & Its Impact on Behavior


Stress & Its Impact on Behavior

What we’ll geek out about

THIS COURSE has been wrapped into Unlocking Resilience: The Big Course. Learn all about it here! 

It’ll come as no surprise that stress affects behavior. In truth, stress is EVERYTHING. (Alright, well, almost everything.) A deep understanding of the effects of stress, how they work at different life stages of the dog, and what we can do about them can be a game changer for the dogs we work with.

Here’s some of what we’ll look at in what I think you’ll find a truly eye-opening course:

  • How to recognize the indicators of stress, from the very obvious to the very subtle
  • Did you know there are actually different types of stress? You’ll learn how to tell the difference, and why it matters
  • How stress impacts a dog’s brain over the course of his or her life
  • The basic physiology of stress–what stress does to a dog’s body

Most importantly, though, we’ll work through what all this means for the dogs you work with, and how you can use this knowledge to improve their quality of life as well as your training and behavior mod outcomes.
