In this webinar Emma discusses:

  • The dog as a social and cognitive being: why regulation is important in social relationships, in forming attachments, in learning how to interact positively and productively with others, in making friends and in forming effective relationships

  • Regulation is taught not caught: the developmental processes of regulatory skills in puppyhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age

  • Development of different regulatory skills in dogs: cognitive processing, coping strategies for frustration, managing stress, coping skills, focus, resilience, tenacity and perseverance

  • Dysregulation: the problems that may occur when dogs struggle to manage their emotions from frustration to anxiety and aggression

  • Regulation is not a synonym for manners: why self- and co-regulation are more than just learning to be still or calm

  • Co-regulation: the importance of social support in canine development
