The type of contact between people and animals has a strong influence on animal welfare. Cats and dogs can perceive a negative interaction or handling experience fearfully. When pets are fearful, their stress responses increase and their well-being is reduced. They can also behave in ways that can harm humans. 

As you explore this module keep in mind the following questions:

  1. How can we reduce stress and risks when handling cats and dogs?
  2. How do recommended guidelines compare to your own experiences with handling animals?
