The Role of Oxytocin in Human-Dog Relationships is a 90 minute webinar, live online on October 11, 2016 and then recorded for OnDemand purchase and viewing. In this webinar,
Lauren Thielke, M.S., discusses the role of Oxytocin (OT) in the human-dog relationship. Due to OT’s important role in human-dog relationships, it has been suggested that nasally-administered OT may have important effects in applied settings for modifying problem behavior or increasing sociability in shelter dogs. However current findings suggest that more applied research is greatly needed, as the effects of exogenous OT on sociability and attachment behavior can be subtle. Results from studies investigating the effects of OT on attachment behavior in dogs, as well as OT’s effects on sociability in shelter dogs will be discussed. Lauren is a Ph.D. student in Animal Sciences Oregon State University, where she studies dog behavior and cognition, and human-animal interactions. Her current research includes projects that explore attachment relationships between dogs and people, as well as projects exploring factors that affect sociability in shelter dogs.
A question and answer session will follow this webinar that will be moderated by Giovanna Rosenlicht, DVM.
