'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

Mice: Taking a Moment...

...Out of doing essays essays essays so many essays to say hello to the mice.




The entire time I was with the mice (just hand feeding some lovely, sickly-sweet-smelling mealworms), the dogs were loose in the room.


Yup, two pretty prey driven dogs spent all their time lying down and staring hopefully, rather than circling like sharks as I'd have expected.

Good girlies! Perhaps they are beginning to view the mice as family members?

Those mice love you! Both Jess and Lola are doing a great job putting up with mice in their house - LOL!
