Long and short distance travelling can have an impact on the physiological parameters of dogs. Research suggest that transporting dogs can impact cortisol and corticosterone levels, indicating that transport is a potent stressor for dogs.
Long and short distance travelling can have an impact on the physiological parameters of dogs. Research suggests that transporting dogs can impact cortisol and corticosterone levels, indicating that transport is a potent stressor for dogs. Ensuring the dog can recover from the potential stress factors caused by travel is essential for optimum performance. Heat stress and dehydration can both result from inadequate transport conditions and maintaining the ideal environment for travelling is essential for the health and wellbeing of the dog.
Research in other species also suggests a decrease in appetite may occur following transport, in particular over long distances, further impacting the recovery of a dog following both transport and competition.
