About this deal

More often than not it means they are fearful of, unsure of, have had negative experiences with, or haven’t been exposed to enough of the type of person they are concerned about. Notice that these differences aren’t just noticeable, they’re also important from a self-protection/safety perspective: the differences are loud, big, scary, threatening. When he’s in front, pulling on the leash, it’s his prerogative as well as his responsibility (so the geometry tells him) to decide who is a threat and who isn’t. This video clip from AOL/Huffpost Live is my opinion of the most important lesson to take away; if you’ve been keeping up with my blog posts you’ll notice a similar theme to a lecture I gave recently at a FIDO/Brooklyn Bark seminar. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

This lady then looks really nervous - and I'm trying desperately to catch the dog and apologise profusely at the same time. Treats are the obvious go-to here; but don’t forget verbal praise, bellyrubs, running, playing, and sniffing. In other words, dogs’ behavior problems reflect the segregated ways in which many Americans still live . Something not often noticed here is that fear behavior – like running away – is equally unacceptable and just as much part of the cause of protective aggression as barking/lunging toward the threat. Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience.This will limit dogs’ chances to express their bad behavior, helping to break them out of the pattern. Care is taken to keep the dog “under threshold” – happy and comfortable, and never stressed or pushed to the point of having a negative reaction to the stimuli. based on years of experience training dogs out of protective/aggressive behaviors to every kind of perceived threat. Eric doesn't like black labs, he barks at them, I'm pretty sure it's because, when in the vets, a black lab came and licked his face when he was a tiny pup on my knee as he was most affronted at the time.

There were a couple of times my dogs went off on one at people; one was a man dressed as a giant licorice allsort doing some promotion. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. We all know the importance of socialization and acclimating our dogs to all kinds of different people, places, and things. The other was a young man with cerebral palsy walking awkwardly on the footpath making screeching noises - Kite was young at the time and had never seen anyone with a disability like that before.

The “black/white” (dark/light) skin color distinction is certainly a visual one; so the fact that dogs can pick up on that while they might leave other racial distinctions aside is fairly predictable. Say you were me, raised with cats and a little skittish with dogs (because I used to think some were racist) and you approached every dog with anxiety. They’ll quickly learn that keeping quiet around strangers leads to treats, and quit acting out altogether—even when the treats stop coming. The process is continued, with increasing intensity of the scary stimulus: the handler moves the dog closer to the scary stimuli, or stages the exercise in a location where there are even more of the scary stimuli.

I think one of the other reasons people are so reluctant to talk about their dog being “racist” (there’s that ugly word again) is they feel it could imply they, too, are racist. Sensible dog care, health and nutrition advice and no-force training tips, Whole Dog Journal equips you with the tools to understand your dog, to encourage his physical and emotional wellness and to elicit his full potential and vitality.That means you might need to go out of your way, and out of your own comfort zone, to ensure your dog makes friends with a virtual rainbow coalition of people! Obviously the dog doesn’t know anyone’s “rap sheet,” but if she was uneasy when those young men were around, her dog would most certainly pick up on it. I always have my new clients put the dog in another room so we can get acquainted with each other and have some time to chat without being distracted. I always wear a hat (and different sorts - cap, trilby etc), so it's really not that he wasn't used to them. It's not racist, but it is freaked out by the fact that all the human-beasts it has seen were a beige colour and now that one is brown.
