'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

Not-entirely-Wordless Wednesday.


Took the girls to a new place to walk. Only saw two dogs, belonging to a pair of girls. Jess went over to investigate--and the girls kicked their own dogs when the dogs started whining to play with her. Sometimes, I hate where I live.

The spaniels were so happy to see Jess; they literally just wanted to play. Poor things.
