|Good points Lance. And you're right; there are "dog trainers" who train dogs & ones who train people & ones who train both. I like Ceasar Milan's way of putting it ---- "I rehabilitate dogs, I train people". Whether you agree with his methods or not, you know where he's coming from & what you're going to get. It's important to know that.
One thing I've noticed a trend in is the way people perceive an acceptable way for dogs to greet other dogs these days. And that seems to be with frenzied exuberance which is fine for dogs who know each other quite well & are accustomed to playing with each other. BUT, that is NOT how canines acceptably greet a "stranger dog" & can cause the new dog to react as if being threatened which in turn causes the greeter to react threateningly. It would be nice if people understood this & did not allow their dogs to greet newcomers with such zeal. Dogs should meet & greet new dogs with calm behavior. People seem to think the uncontrolled exhuberance is cute behavior but in reality it is a stick of dynamite waiting to be lit.
"If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went."
