Attention Oregon Residents!

I am selling (locally, no shipping) my dog training/behavior books. I have learned SO MUCH from these and want to share this knowledge with others. If you are interested, reply thru the craigslist ad (click HERE).

 

 

Attention Dog Owners

I stumbled across these informative graphics created by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants this week. Please share!

Our Lab Marley doesn’t show these body signals but I strongly suspect she is uncomfortable at the dog park (even when there’s only a handful of other dogs present).

2

Marley drools at the dog park (long strands of drool) and is always happy when I get the leash out signaling it’s time to leave. I no longer take her to the dog park or doggie daycare for this reason.

I’ve seen this scenario countless times at dog parks.

Owners need to accept that their pushy or aggressive dog needs proper training to correct such behavior. They shouldn’t put their dog (and other dogs) in a potentially bad situation by going to dog parks.

This time of year, everyone can use a reminder to look out for cats around their vehicles. I tap on the hood in hopes of scaring a cat away from our vehicle. So far, I haven’t found any of our cats (including barn cats) this way but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop checking.
