Roundup 24 – Favorite Dog Articles, Deals, & Videos of the Week
Did you know that dirt roads are the perfect spot to get rid of trash? I’ve lived here for a few years now and it still amazes me how many “drive & dumps” we have; people tossing all sorts of crap onto the side of the road. We’ve seen piles of fish, dishwashers, plastic bins filled with glass shards, and so many other wonderful natural wonders – right on our own road.
Last night on our walk Laika managed to find a couple of deer carcasses before I did. It quickly turned into the ‘best walk ever’ for her. She had a blast rolling around on ’em, grunting, and looking up at me with the biggest grin you’ve ever seen. How was your Friday evening?
In much less smelly news here’s my picks for this weeks favorite dog articles, deals, & videos. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. And yes – she got the hose after that walk – but don’t worry, she loves that too.

How To Piss Off A Golden Retriever Owner
This post is brilliant. Instead of judging a dog based on their breed and/or appearance we need to realize that there was a lot of time, training, and dedication put into raising any well behaved dog. Dogs aren’t born with great manners, they’re learned.
My Dog Is An Idiot
This post certainly made me laugh, and I’ve still got a grin on my face as I write about it. It celebrates the thoughts we have while analyzing our pets intelligence based on their behaviors & quirks; and makes us realize how endearing they really are.
AAHA 2015 Canine & Feline Behavior Management Guidelines
Happy to see these newly published standards for veterinarians regarding animal behavior. Great in depth look at the success of using positive training techniques.
This Task Force opposes training methods that use aversive techniques. Aversive training has been associated with detrimental effects on the human–animal bond, problemsolving ability, and the physical and behavioral health of the patient. It causes problem behaviors in normal animals and hastens progression of behavioral disorders in distressed animals. Aversive techniques are especially injurious to fearful and aggressive patients and often suppress signals of impending aggression, rendering any aggressive dog more dangerous.
Dog Waited Years in the Shelter, Until One Facebook Post Changed Everything
When we think about the millions of animals in shelters it’s easy to feel helpless, but stories like these help inspire us to keep going. It only takes one post – one image – for that special person to feel a connection with an animal in need.
V for Vendetta the Dog, A Success Story
If you own a dog that has some behavioral problems (trust me, you’re not alone) this post is for you. Sometimes we feel like we’re not making progress, or that it’s not quick enough. Realizing that others have gone through the same situation, and that their dedication has made a difference, can keep us moving forward towards our own goals.
