Dog Behaviour. Dog Training. Noise Aversion/Fear of Noises

As part of the noise aversion scenario, it is common for dogs to become sensitive to stimuli that forecast something else. For example, with a dog that is scared of thunder, they have been known to react to the air pressure dropping, which leads to the wind getting up, which often accompanies thunder. Most markedly, your dog may start to pace and whine when the wind increases. [Read More…]

Dog Training. Dog Behaviour. Dogs jumping up on people!

Dogs Jumping Up -
Always give your dog the opportunity to ‘Do Good’ and ask for a ‘Sit’.
Do not raise your voice or move your arms as both will stimulate your dog more.
Instead, have visitors fold their arms and turn around away from him/her. [Read More…]

Dog Behaviour. ‘Dogs peeing when greeting visitors’

With visitors coming and going at this time of year I thought it might be helpful to discuss
‘Dogs weeing when greeting visitors…’
Yes yes this may be a tad embarrassing for you the owner but
this can be Submissive or Excitement Urination.
For this issue, PUNISHMENT WILL MAKE THIS WORSE NOT BETTER!
Excitement Urination - It’s like, ‘I’m so excited I peed my pants!’

Dog Behaviour. The Christmas Rush! Stress in Dogs.

Tis’ the Season! This can be quite a stressful time of year for your beloved dogs as well as yourselves.
There can be extra people in your home, with guests visiting (and possibly the shrill coming from ‘little people’), lots of exciting wrapping paper mountains, flashing lights and just in general a lot more ‘buzz’ around. [Read More…]

Dog Behaviour. Children and dogs the importance of the right information…

Many children I come across in my school visits, say a friendly dog has a wagging tail but a tail wag does not always mean a friendly dog…
When a dogs tail is wagging up ’stiff like a board’ (almost ‘ping ping ping’) instead of ‘flowing like a wave’, this is not a good, friendly sign!
Education is key (I offer free dog safety & education talks to schools within my business area)
