Weekend Schedule:

Saturday, 27th July 2024

  • Daniel ShawExploring the Experience of Trauma from a Dogs Perspective: Trauma in dogs, much like in humans, can leave deep psychological scars that affect behavior and well-being. By examining trauma through a dog’s eyes, we gain valuable insights into their emotional world, revealing how past experiences shape their responses to stress and fear. Understanding these perspectives not only enhances our ability to provide compassionate care but also underscores the importance of patience and empathy in the healing process. This exploration helps bridge the gap between human and canine experiences, fostering a deeper connection and promoting more effective support for our four-legged companions.
