Assessment and Treatment of Hyperarousal Behaviors in Dogs

Recorded On: 04/25/2024

This course is part of Maddie's Monthly Behavior Connection, monthly webcasts about dog and cat behavior - supporting pets in our community and animal shelters. 

Hyperarousal behaviors are common in dogs and are often not correctly identified in the non-clinical behavior setting. Dogs with hyperarousal behaviors can be dangerous, resulting in bruising and bites to family from jumping and grabbing. Injury is often serious enough that many dogs are relinquished. Effective assessment and treatment can result in a majority of dogs being able to stay safely in their adopted home.  This talk reviews what is currently known about hyperarousal/ hypersensitivity syndrome in dogs and report on a treatment approach used by the author that has led to significant improvement in behaviors and most of the dogs being able to stay safely in their adopted homes.
