Urban Experiences

This morning we went into town to give Salma an urban experience of waking in town on lead. What an exhausting morning she had!!! She travelled very quietly in the car but when she arrived in the town she was quite overexcited by so much going on – cars, people walking around, noises (a delivery [...]

Free Work & Ground Work with Salma

Yesterday we did some free work.  At first Salma was not interested in the free work because her priority is to be with people. Mimi, on the other hand, delved in immediately – quite the opposite of her behaviour when she was alone before the arrival of Salma. When she did start to search and [...]

Salma’s second TTouch lead session

Yesterday afternoon we did two exercises. The first was free work. I put out a variety of different surfaces, some smooth and others more rough and a tray with a few plastic balls, and placed pieces of cheese on them. Salma did not have a clue at first but Mimi, who in the past would [...]

The Value of Cooperation

Some years ago during a trip to Guatemala they told me this joke. "A man went to the market where he saw a fishmonger who had two wooden barrels on his stall. In each barrel there were shrimps. One barrel had one price and the other a different, higher price. One barrel was open and [...]

And so your dog begins to age…

And suddenly one day you realise that your dog is growing old. It isn’t that he suddenly grew old. It isn’t that you hadn’t noticed small signs of change, but suddenly one day a “tipping point” seemed to be reached and the reality was there staring you in the face. What might those little telltale [...]

Circumstances that Can Influence Behaviours

A couple of weeks ago I went to the garden centre. I noticed that one of the German Shepherds was no longer there. The owner told me that he had become paralysed in the hindquarters and she had opted for euthanasia. He was 12 years old. I also noticed that in a compound there were [...]

Awareness or…out of sight, out of mind?

Are things always as we imagine them to be? I think not. This morning we took the dogs to the beach. As we walked through the pine grove which borders the beach a black lab came tearing up to us, wagging her tail very fast. She was clearly looking for someone. She was wearing a [...]
