In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, is joined by Hagar Hauser, DVM, DACVB, to talk about her recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Growling Behavior in Dogs.” Growling is a normal form of canine communication, and sometimes it can be a bigger problem when it doesn’t happen. Dr. Hauser offers a comprehensive review of why these behaviors happen—including how veterinary team members can inadvertently reinforce these behaviors—and offers tips to help strike a balance between a dog’s boundaries and warning signals with the need to complete an examination. Dr. Hauser also offers helpful advice to share with clients of these growly patients.
