'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

All About Jess.

Today marks Lola's eighth month of life, which means I've had her for just shy of six months. We didn't do anything special today for her though, as Jess decided the day should be all about her, culminating in a vet trip to have her anal glands expressed.

She's happier now and seems fine, and Lola doesn't know that it was supposed to be a Lola-centric day so she's not bothered either. Now let's just hope that the girls can stay nice and healthy, at least until my final exam on Monday.

That sounds like an Unpleasant trip to the vets!
