MOST DANGEROUS DOG BREEDS
I see in my email feed nearly every day lists of the "most dangerous dog breeds". The sources range from the commercially driven (Insurance Companies) to the simply crazy. Far too many journalists fall for this tripe, especially as it works so well as click...

HOW DO OUR DOGS TALK TO US?
This morning I am sitting in a friend’s kitchen in The
Bahamas. Their dog Boss, who sleeps with me when I am here, is not feeling
well. I can tell this, not because he came up and said “Uncle Jim,
I don’t feel well”, but because of his actions. Last evening...

Yadira Thompson's profile photo
 
Hello, my name is Yadira Thompson and I am reaching out to you because I NEED your help to save my dogs life. I have a 5 year old pit bull named Rocsi who is being held at the Jefferson Parish animal shelter and is going to be put down. She has been in the shelter since December and has not seen sunlight or been on a walk since then. I am positive that a lot of her aggression that she is showing now is due to her lack of activity and fear. I'm asking if you could come to the shelter and perhaps see if she is trainable and tell me if she is this "Vicious" dog that the animal shelter is portraying her out to be. I have a petitition on change.org if you'd like to see videos and photos of her and hear her story. This is really breaking my heart if you feel that you could help I would greatly appreciate it. You could reach me at 5019149300. On the website Change.org search, "Free Rocsi to her loving family". Thank you!

5 things to do if you see someone attacked by a dog.
Despite the title, this is not one of THOSE articles.  I hate clickbait articles that purport to give you ten things that will save you marriage, or five things you didn't know about the celebrity family that we know far too much about.  But I was contacted...

MIND THE GAP
If you have ever been to visit London it is extremely likely
that you have used the Underground (in American terms it’s the subway).  If you have, you undoubtedly heard the disembodied
voice of the Underground saying “Mind the Gap”.

FOOD GUARDING: An example of how I do it. Without the ninja moves. Or the drama.
A while back I wrote about a video that involved a dog trainer doing his magic with a yellow Labrador Retriever that had food guarding issues. During this demonstration a lot of drama was generated and displayed. The trainer menacingly invaded the dog's per...

DOG AGGRESSION AND THE POLICE. Not the band silly....
Dogs and cops. Cops and dogs. Owners and agencies. They seem to be coming into conflict far too often these days. Are dog shootings rising? Are there more threats to police officers, and are they valid? Is this conflict a long-standing one that is being bro...
