Read this today, it's about autism in theory, but has lots of parallels with dogs too.

Including how even positive R can be misused if dog/human needs aren't being met

That's brilliant - and highlights the importance of truly listening to our dogs and responding to what they are trying to tell us.

Thanks for that, Bendog - it is indeed very interesting and I hope will make a difference to some. I love behaviour work because I have an analytical mind so I always want to find out why, but so many people aren't interested in 'why' or don't have the empathy skills to see behaviour from the other point of view.
