Sleep is characterized by being in a state of altered consciousness, during which time sensory activity is inhibited, muscle activity is reduced and interactions with surroundings are decreased. During sleep, essential functions, such as memory consolidation, neuronal pruning, cellular repair, and restoration of vital resources for metabolic functions occur throughout the brain and body to maintain healthy brain function and physical health. From dolphins sleeping one brain hemisphere at a time, to fruit flies having deep rest periods, nature acknowledges the importance of sleep, ensuring all animals benefit from the restoration that occurs during sleep. In dogs, sleep has been shown to play critical roles in vital functions such as immune, metabolism, and cognitive health, and disturbed sleep can act both as a trigger for disease processes and a diagnostic indicator for disease. Does lack of sleep cause memory impairment and if so, how might that impact behavior? Is there such a thing as too much sleep? Is there evidence that behavioral issues be linked back to sleep quality and patterns? In this webinar, we will look at how sleep impacts learning and memory, both directly and indirectly through changes to processes within the brain and body. These questions and more will be answered, along with information on how we can support healthy sleep. Learning Objectives: Evaluate whether your/your client's dogs are getting enough restorative sleep and if not, whether this is having an impact on their behavior Apply concepts of rest periods before, during, and after learning events Develop plans to implement sleep strategies into your/your client's dogs day
