This webinar presentation will be a very brief overview/introduction to helping dogs cope with stress. Jane Miller will provide a number of stress reduction/relaxation techniques along with monitoring methods. This is a very basic introduction to stress reduction/relaxation techniques covering the definition of stress, eustress and distress. Due to time constraints we will not be focusing on the brain’s role.
The stress reduction techniques that will be discussed include breathing, acupressure points, TTouch, canine massotherapy, reiki, meditation, and biofeedback etc. The monitoring methods of stress will be addressed include, stress signs/body language, cortisol levels from saliva, urine and hair, heart rate and variable heart rates, breathing rates, pulse, vagal tone, biofeedback, and MRI’s, which are costly and invasive and may cause stress levels to increase by the testing itself.
