'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

Goin' to Wales, to see some cool collie dogs.
I'm off to Wales tomorrow (well, later today technically - it's after midnight here) for a long weekend with my friend and my friend's awesome dogs: a labrador, a daschund and the best border collies ever. I will return with so many pictures of her fantastic pets, and will catch up on everyone's blogs after the weekend - it's been very busy here today!
Until Monday, have a picture of my silly girls to tide you all over:
Have a good weekend, all! My mum will hate me when I get back, having to look after these two.
