Dog Behaviour. Your dog does not have to be friends with every dog they meet…

Stop the Press! Your dog does not have to be ‘friends’ with every dog or person they meet on a walk.
Think of it this way, do you stop and chat to everybody you meet as you walk down the street, I think not. [Read More…]

Dog Training. Dog Behaviour. The subtleties in a situation..

Dog training and behaviour can be about the subtleties in a situation…
An example that can happen and be accumulative in nature, is from when you undertake the recall (The ‘Come’) after your dog has been off leash and you regularly put your dog straight back onto a short leash/lead. This restriction can be too much of a negative for some, discouraging the recall. [Read More…]

Dog Behaviour, Antisocial Dog Behaviour

A sign that a dog is antisocial about other dogs, is that he or she is uncomfortable about being sniffed at the rear end.
Think of the refusal to rear end sniff as the equivalent of the snub of the hand shake in human interaction - it’s quite a big deal!

Dog Behaviour and Body Language, Children, Dog Safety & Education,

Many children I come across say a friendly dog has a wagging tail but a tail wag does not always mean a friendly dog…

Education is key (I also offer free dog safety & education talks to schools within my business area)

Dog Behaviour, Dog Training, Dogs on the Lead and Reactionary Behaviour

The dynamic of a dog to dog social interaction is perceived differently, if your dog is on the lead and other dogs are off-lead – so the off-lead dogs are accessing freedom (or vice-versa). I have witnessed many an instance, where the slightly under confident dog that is off-lead, encounters one that is on lead, then becomes a different individual altogether.
The resulting situation may be one of hostility unless you and your dog are acting relaxed. [Read More…]
