'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

Flirtpole Fun.












Small things amuse small (terrier) minds. The awesome thing is that flirtpole tires her out more than two times the amount of time she'd be playing fetch for - so ten minutes of flirtpole is equivalent to like twenty five minutes of fetch. Very nice when you've got university work to do. (But I should be popping around to visit and catch up again tomorrow or Saturday!)
