Dogs are NOT children in fluffy coats, they are complex creatures. WE, many many generations ago, removed them from the wild and domesticated them. In doing so we complicate them. We have them lose their natural behaviours, and make judging them as ‘wild animals’ or even ‘pack animals’ very difficult because many of their natural instincts are a dim and distant memory, only to return when under huge stress, and often only the negative parts as regards a family or pet dog.
I hope these articles, which I will add to over time, will help.
