  • 1.  Maddie's Insights: What Laboratory Studies May Tell Us About Stress in a Dog Shelter

    Posted 08-16-2022 10:24 AM

    Maddie's Insights are monthly webcasts with practical tips based on current research to help pets and people.

    This month, @Michael Hennessy, Professor of Psychology, Wright State University, will be joined by Regina Willen, Founder and Director at HALO K9 Behavior. They will discuss how basic scientific research informs our understanding of the stress dogs undergo in a shelter environment. They will 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 will also be considered.

    This program was recorded on Thursday, September 8, 2022

    After the webcast, join us right here on Maddie's Pet Forum to continue the discussion, ask questions and exchange ideas.

    This webinar will be recorded and has been pre-approved for 1.0 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credits by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement and by the National Animal Care & Control Association.
