In this very special episode Nat and Steve are joined once again by Clinical Animal Behaviourist Danielle Beck to preview her virtual Trauma in Animals Conference.
We are so excited by the line up of fantastic speakers and the whole ethos and concept of this conference we just had to shout about it! We also talk more about trauma, how it can effect animals, how you can assess if trauma might be playing a part in your dogs behaviour and how to approach it.
