'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

Tricky T-Day 1.
So, I decided we're going to try and do tricky t-day. I say try because I have the worst memory in history; and I have a lot of university work I'm having to do at the moment. This isn't a new trick we've learned specifically for this, but I might as well show it off. By next week we'll have something new I'm starting to work on the foundations of for her.
