Anyone who has adopted a puppy knows that they can be a handful.

They found that the dogs enrolled in classes where they were trained with yelling and leash-yanking had higher levels of cortisol in class than when they were

A new study from Portugal found evidence that training dogs with negative commands could cause them long-term stress.

The study, which focused on stress responses in puppies who were trained using either aversion techniques or positive reinforcement methods. Using a sample size of 92 dogs from seven different training schools that used one of the two training methods, the researchers tallied the number of stress-related behaviors from each dog during and after a training session.

What they found was that the dogs trained using the aversive method displayed significantly more stress behaviors — including lip licking, yawning, and paw-raising — than the pups trained without yelling or leash-yanking. This was true both during and after training, suggesting that the elevated stress levels of the dogs don’t return to normal even when the dogs returned home.

Vessel shortage forces Canada to scrap key climate change research mission

  Vessel shortage forces Canada to scrap key climate change research mission Fisheries and Oceans Canada was forced this fall to cancel a core oceanographic survey used to monitor climate change because it could not find a ship capable of handling ocean conditions in the North Atlantic. The scrapped mission is another example of fallout from Canada's aging fleet.The 56-year-old Canadian Coast Guard science ship Hudson normally carries out offshore Atlantic Zone Monitoring Program (AZMP) surveys, but Hudson was unavailable this year because a vessel life extension refit had to be extended. For 2019, Fisheries and Oceans Canada hired a private research vessel, Coriolis II, but the Rimouski, Que.

This is a significant finding on its own, but the researchers went the extra set of sampling the stress hormone levels of each animal over the course of their observations. In the dogs who were trained using the aversive method, the levels of the stress hormone cortisol were elevated during training.

An additional experiment tasked the dogs with seeking out a bowl that contained a treat in a room. The dogs were trained to know that when the bowl was on one side of the room, a treat was present, but that the bowl was empty if it was on the other side of the room.

The bowl was then placed at random locations in the room to see how the dogs would react. The pups who endured aversion training were much more pessimistic and avoided the bowl at a higher rate than those who were trained with the reward-based method. The researchers interpret this as the more stressed dogs having a depressive mindset.

If nothing else, this research shows that reward-based training has some significant advantages over the older method, and it’s something to consider if you recently welcomed a new puppy into your home.
