TW: Trauma, abuse, SH

In this episode, Nikki and Britteny finish up the effects of trauma to the brain. Knowing which state your dog's brain is in can help you build empathy and true understanding to how you should meet him where he is.

This is a difficult episode. We highly recommend you have coping strategies put in place! Nikki's was a spicy margarita and Britt's was a bourbon drink. Afterwards, they stuffed their face with Crab Legs and Prime Rib while laughing at Nikki's dad's humor.

Next week's episode will conclude our trauma series. We will be giving you directions on how to help your dog with his trauma and building resilience.
