Teaching your dog to make eye contact on request is extremely useful because it is an easy behaviour that you can reward with any of your reward options (food, interaction or activities – see Guide & Control for an explanation). It can be variously described as teaching a “look” or “watch me”, or simply paying attention to you. Use it as a preamble to any other request or as an alternative behaviour to anything you would rather your dog didn’t do. I use it extensively in Dogs That Bite & Fight, …

You thought it was a good idea to get a puppy for Christmas? Right, well now it’s time to shape up because you have just become responsible for a life. You’ve done the jokes – “A dog is not just for Christmas, with a bit of luck there’ll be some left over for sandwiches on Boxing Day” and you thought you’d thought it through – after all, everybody knows  it’s just a dog – they basically look after themselves don’t they?

The concept of resource control has been around for years, but over those years it seems to have been corrupted. In some cases it became an attempt to control dogs through denying them access to the things they want and need; about “pack leadership” and “status” – which it never should have been.
The idea became so tainted that not long ago questions were asked on the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors’ forum as to why we professional behaviourists were using it (the answer is that we use it because we …

On the day when the law changes to criminalise the owners of dogs deemed to be dangerously out of control on private, as well as public, property it is interesting to note that the 2013 NHS figures for hospital admissions as a result of dog bite (or strike) show another an annual increase of 6%  http://www.hscic.gov.uk/4722
