In order to be able to understand behaviour it is important that we understand the emotional motivations that underpin behavioural responses. Panksepp describes seven different behavioural circuits in the brain. Four of these circuits develop very shortly after birth and an understanding of these systems is crucial to optimising emotional development. A further three circuits develop as the puppy matures. This talk will explain the systems and the behavioural responses that result from them as well as some of the body language signals that dogs use to communicate their emotional state. This knowledge is important in advising owners how to rear puppies to be emotionally stable and resilient adults.
