Event Details

Keep Calm and Carry On...Understanding and managing over-arousal in dogs

Many owners struggle with dogs that are over-aroused, whether this is the result of excitement, fear or frustration. This can lead to difficulties with work, training and many behaviour problems including recall problems, inappropriate chasing, barking and repetitive behaviours. Managing arousal and teaching dogs to be calm is an important aspect of dealing with many problem behaviours. This conference should be of interest to anyone living or working with dogs, whether they are wired Whippets, crazy Collies or even chilled Chihuahuas. During the day we will explore what arousal is, why some dogs seem to become over-aroused more easily than others and how this can influence a dog’s physiology and ability to learn. We will look at practical strategies for reducing arousal and helping dogs to be calmer including appropriate management strategies, exercise, training and activities such as tracking and searching. We will explore the use and efficacy of calming medications, supplements and diets, and therapies such as massage and T touch. We will also look at achieving calmness in specific situations including within the multi-dog household.
