Puppy now read
Well now we have moved on from our
Puppy training to our Dogs behaviour.
As we have said before, please
remember that dogs ( infact all animals)
will push the limit at any given chance.
Yes its our responsibility to wind them
in at these points. Like children they
get carried away with what they are
doing. So our problem is where the cut
off point is. Where do we discriminate
between enthusiasm and recklessness.
At the same time we need to be cautious
not to distroy the spirit of the dog.
Dogs best respond to facial and voice
tone. To snarl when chastising your dog,
and using a pointed finger at it
reastablishes your control over the dog,
as the leader of the pack.
Remember, never, but never strick a dog
as this would have the worse effect
possiable, and instead of helping infact
worsen your control over it.
Most animals respond to some love,
and strangely know when they are wrong
before you even say anything. The tail
between the legs indicates submission,
and is its way of saying "I know".
So lets all enjoy our puppies / dogs and
maintain their spirit as well as our tempers.
