Only fools rush in...or face the consequences.
As many of you know, part of the work I do is responding to cases where police officers use deadly force against pets. Some cases are clearly justified, and some...not so much. Often my involvement revolves around one of two focus points: reactive assessmen...

Fear vs Targeted Aggression: Can we tell the difference?
It has been said that we, humans, are born as fear based creatures craving attention. I believe that the same idea applies to dogs. Dealing with fearful dogs is a pretty regular task for me in my work. I spent time with 54 dogs seized from a hoarder that ha...

Force, prisons, and training. Salvation or perpetuation of the status quo?

In the last 24 hours international interest has focused on a well known trainer and methods they use because of needless injury to an animal by a dog with a history of violence toward livestock. This reminded me of something written by Warren Ellis (the Eng...
