'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

Lola versus Snake.

Lesson One in the house: Don't believe the Older Dog when she growls at you. She just wants to play; you may continue to leap on her head and sides without concern.

Even after a certain someone--not naming any names, JESSIE--almost broke my hand earlier trying to kill an annoying dog (her lead was wrapped around my hand so tightly that afterwards, my fingertips were numb), I can't help but love these silly dogs.
