Stress is a villainized word in our line of work – but we need stress to survive, our dogs need stress to do what they were bred to do, and some stress is good. Presenter Melissa McCue-McGrath, CPDT-KA, will flip the script on how we classify stress in our line of work. She’ll investigate why one person’s distress might be someone else’s eustress (good stress); explain how this translates to dogs, and clearly instruct on what professional dog trainers need to know about the full picture to best help clients. By the end of this presentation, participants will have more tools in their pockets to navigate stressful experiences with both clients and their dogs with confidence and skill.
