Topic: How mothers matter: The influence of early maternal interaction on offspring behavior and development

Learn about the ways in which maternal style, experienced over the first few weeks of life, has a long-lasting impact on later offspring development.

Included in this discussion:

  • The association between maternal behavior and later offspring temperament and cognition
  • The association between maternal behavior and later success of the offspring as a guide dog
  • The nuances of maternal behavior and how small amounts of stress in early life likely lead to resilience
  • Ongoing research to investigate the influence of mothering across other types of working dogs

Depending on your location and field, there may be continuing education credit options, as well. Don't miss it!
