How do we greet our dogs – being a responsible dog lover

I don’t often reproduce another Canine Behavourists blog but this one from Casey Lomonaco is just too well written and too true not to share with you. She has a great gift of being able to see it from the dogs perspective. How often do you see a cute puppy and cuddle it and hug it while the puppy desperately struggles to get away? How often have you stopped to think what is going on in the dog’s mind?

All too often I also consult with clients on issues that occur for them with dogs that interact badly with their dogs at “off lead” areas. I wonder if the owners of these off lead nuisances understand how badly behaved (untrained and unrestrained) their dogs are.

Hope you enjoy this excellent article

Remember: to hug the dog, kiss the cat and tell your goldfish you love them.
