'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

Devil Dog.

The little devil herself and her new shark toy (she also got a little bear), from the charity shop. We had a nice moment today - she ate several pieces of ham off of my friend Kelly's hand. K isn't a dog person at all, so I'm very happy Lola was comfortable enough to eat from her hand; she started out moving far away, and by the last few pieces was happy enough to lean past her hand to sniff and see if she had any more.

Well if she can attack a shark, surely taking ham from a person is no big deal :)

Yea Lola!

Good girl Lola (guess she's not always a devil dog - LOL!)
