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 80 – Does Jess have mental health issues? We're all screwed up (and that's OK)

Dawn Walton, a human therapist, and Jess Probst, a dog behaviourist compare their definitions of what mental health issues actually means, after Jess asked Dawn if she has any mental health issues and Dawn said yes! The talk about the term "to provoke" and how there is an underlying level of stress and then situational / provoked stress on top of that (Is the cup full of water or the bucket half full of blood – you decide!) And of course there is the normal meandering through different topics!
