The Full Moon and behaviour

I’m interested to hear if any research has been done on dog behaviour & training experiences around the time of a full moon.

I find training classes are generally more hectic and scattered around the time of a full moon; the dogs seem to be unsettled and in many cases more reactive.

When I was consulting I recall having more calls about aggression and dogs bites too.

Does anyone know of any research done or statistics on this? (or interesting papers to read?)

Also what experiences have other trainers and behaviourists had?

Thanks! Sarah
