Dealing with Separation Anxiety in Dogs
In this two-part podcast, Dr. Karen Overall discusses an issue of major importance to many dog owners: separation anxiety and noise phobia in dogs. Dr. Overall received her VMD from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine and PhD in Zoology from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. She completed a residency in Behavioral Medicine at Penn and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behavior (ACVB) and is certified by the Animal Behavior Society (ABS) as an Applied Animal Behaviorist. Dr. Overall’s clinical work is focused on the humane treatment of troubled pets and their distressed people. Her research has two main foci, first to understanding the neurobiology and genetics of canine behavior and canine cognition, and second, the development of natural genetic and behavioral canine models for human psychiatric illness, particularly those involving anxiety, panic, and aggression.
