Listen to our podcast

Jess and Dawn love to chat about animal vs human behaviour. Dawn is to humans what Jess is to dogs – they both love to learn and are open to anything that gets the best results for owners and dogs alike. Every time they get together they end up going down a rabbit hole of discussion, and so decided to share their conversations with you.

The podcast is a series of episodes recorded as Jess and Dawn sit in Starbucks, discussing all sorts of things!

Grab a drink, take a seat, and enjoy listening in to them as they chat.

Therapy Tails 96 – Jess is a potato We're all screwed up (and that's OK)

Dawn Walton, a human therapist, and Jess Probst, a dog behaviourist, sit in Dawn's car looking out over the River Tay in Dundee, and discuss stress. What happens when a dog or a person is stressed? How does it affect Cognitive function and what can we do about it? They explore the concept of behaviour coming from somewhere and how easy it is to fixate on the behaviour without understanding what is creating it. They discuss why desensitisation and counter conditioning are limited in their effectiveness, in people and dogs. And of course, as usual, there are the normal random topics, including the distraction of a group of 7 Jet Skis making their way down the Tay Link to data on the effectiveness of Dawn's therapy approach vs CBT etc
