Re: airedale and coyote playing

I know of Brian, was not impressed with his first book. read very much like someone who put the cart before the horse in terms of actually being a dog "expert" as claimed. If you do a forum search on Dognition you can find the discussions we had here. Always willing to give a second chance as people...

airedale and coyote playing

Here is a little something interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_GKqBqYANE *updated link to another source Been a long time since we had a video like this to mull over. My take, all play. Coyote is defiantly more comfortable, Airedale might be a little unsure, but does not look like a dog in...

Without being able to ask the person who said it, I am not so sure we will ever know what they were trying to say for sure.

Re: Social dominance?

Also lovely handling of a social dilemma by the husky, who was effectively saying: "You can interact with me but mind your manners because I'll stop our discussion if you forget yourself" and by doing so is teaching Mr. Mastiff how to behave. But gently, no over-the-top stuff. And Mr. Mastiff is re...

Re: Social dominance?

There is absolutely something real that is trying to be described by various scientific fields that use the term dominance/social dominance. it's a real thing.

Re: fear agression

I spend a lot of time working with fearful dogs. I am not impressed with the thundershirt. the evidence that it works is....well a bit thin shall we say. I much more prefer working with Desensitization and Classical Conditioning, combined with teaching the dog skills that will help them either learn...

Re: Dog Agression

You may be trying to go too fast, too soon. This is probably a significant part of why you are struggling to make progress. Another, it is possible you still haven't connected with a trainer that truly specializes in what you are needing to help Apollo. I don't want to spend too much time on that p...

Re: Question about raw meat

Yes, raw chicken and UNCOOKED bones are fine - cooked bones are dangerous. There's a number of threads on the forum about raw feeding if you're interested. An example would be to give the dog a fresh chicken wing, meat still on the bone. depending on size of the dog you might want to remove the ski...
