Whining can be occurring because of -
- Attention Seeking (To get treats, toys etc. from you)
- Excitement - When your dog is greeting you
- Appeasement (wanting to pacify or avoid conflict).
The dogs tail will be often tucked in under their body, which is lowered, with their head down also and eyes averted. [Read More…]

Most mouthing is normal dog behaviour. [Read More…]

Dog Training. Dog Behaviour. I have not taught our dogs to 'heel'...and 'How to stop pulling on the lead.' ~/?x=entry:entry190831-140742 2019-08-31T14:07:42+00:00 2019-08-31T14:07:42+00:00

They simply should not be pulling on that lead (thus trying to get you to go in the direction they want to go *), the lead should be fairly loose. [Read More…]

Inappropriate Dog Mounting/Dog Humping -
It is important to remember that dogs do not share our views on what is anti-social behaviour. Or behaviour that is a little too friendly.
A dog mounts/humps because he or she is aroused and that does not have to be sexually aroused. [Read More…]
