Sorry to Say (Dogs and Guilt, Revisited) | The Other End of the Leash
Good look at the ‘do dogs feel guilty’ question (or should I say debate?). And the important reminder that appeasement is not the same thing as feeling guilt.
The distinction is important, because “my dog looks guilty” often is translated into “I know he knows better” and therefore should be punished.
Get Off Yer Butt and Train Your Dog! | Wilde About Dogs
Reminder that when it comes to life some things are aren’t quick and easy, and that can be especially true when it comes to using effective training techniques.
How Dogs Interact With Others Plays a Role in Decision Making | Science Daily
Interesting look at how dogs learn from one another, and how that learning is impacted by the relationships they have with familiar dogs.
Anti-Tethering Ordinance Passed for Detroit Dog Owners | Fox 2 Detroit
New ordinance bans the use of ropes or chains, and prohibits owners from tethering their dogs for more than 3 hours a day. Many thanks to C.H.A.I.N.E.D. for all the awesome support they provide to owners and dogs in the Detroit area.
There’s No Such Thing as a Good Dog | Outside Online
Reminder that well behaved dogs aren’t the result of luck or magic, they’re the result of dedication and patience on behalf of the owner.
