'Not only is punishment risky, but it also fails to teach the dog an acceptable alternate behaviour. The dog does not learn what to do the next time he is in the same situation. He only learns to fear the situation.' Emma Parsons, Click to Calm p73

Bringing Lola home.

On Tuesday 30th November--in one week's time!--at about 4:30pm, just a few hours after her first injections, I'll be bringing little Lola home. We're picking up all the stuff for her in the next couple of days: crate, toys, collar, lead, food, etc etc. She's already met Jess once, and the meeting went well, with Jess sniffing her whilst her tail happily wagged. I'm anticipating some ruffled feathers in the first few days at least, but I'll be paying twice the attention than usual to my old girl, and hopefully she won't be too jealous.
