Maddie's Insights: What Laboratory Studies May Tell Us About Stress in a Dog Shelter
Recorded On: 09/08/2022
Maddie's Insights are monthly webcasts with practical tips based on current research to help pets and people.
In this program, Dr. Michael Hennessy, Professor in the Department of Psychology, Wright State University, is joined by Regina Willen, Founder and Director at HALO K9 Behavior (see Pt 2 for her talk). They discuss how basic scientific research informs our understanding of the stress dogs undergo in a shelter environment. They also examine immediate effects of entry to a shelter as well as potential long-term consequences. How basic research findings suggest practicable means for reducing or preventing these outcomes was also considered.
