A Quick Pick-Me Up

I want you to imagine for a moment what it would be like if humans were the domestic pets, maybe of aliens or giants who are 20 feet tall. All of our needs are taken care off — food, shelter, medicine, and so on. So you’re going about your business, maybe having a nap after a big meal, and then one of these gigantic owners lumbers in, leans over and reaches down. Next thing you know, they grab you around your chest and haul you up. You suddenly find yourself at the height of a two story building with your

Pride And Predator: Do Dogs Feel Proud Of Themselves?

Previously, we’ve looked at whether dogs can feel emotions like guilt or jealousy with mixed results. Many researchers do not believe that dogs actually feel guilt, but instead express anticipation over punishment under certain circumstances — for example, if the accident they had in the kitchen is visible when their human comes home. On the other hand, at least one study showed that dogs can behave in a jealous manner, at least when they think their human is paying too much attention to another dog — although, again, it isn’t clear whether they’re experiencing the emotion or we are just

Essential Qualities Of A Pack Leader

People ask me all the time, “How can I be a Pack Leader?” Well, there’s a simple answer to that: You have to act like one. But this is probably a bit too simple… The answer to the first question is another question: “What does a Pack Leader do?” And there are a lot of apparent answers to that question: A Pack Leader controls their dogs. They don’t have any behavior issues with their pack. They’re always in control. That’s the what, but the question is “How?” And the answer to that is actually simple: In order to be a

Brutus Or Bridget?

This week, let’s play “What if?” There are two dogs that need to be rehabilitated. I want you to pick the difficult case for me to handle, while you take the easy one, okay? The first dog, Brutus, is a Rottweiler/pit bull mix who weighs 150 pounds. He’s a strong, excitable dog. He isn’t aggressive, but he pulls all over the place on the walk and jumps on people. He’s already knocked over his owner’s brother, causing him to break his arm. The second dog is Bridget. She’s a Shih Tzu/Pomeranian mix and weighs about 8 pounds. She’s afraid of

Tilt: A New Angle On An Old Habit

If you’ve ever been around a dog, you’ve probably seen this classic of canine behavior: they tilt their head to one side while you’re talking to them, and the tilt seems to be bigger the more excited your tone of voice is. It’s such a universal behavior in dogs that you’d think science would have figured out the cause for it a long time ago. Well, science does have an answer, which is, “We’re not really sure.” Multiple explanations Although dogs perceive the world through nose, eyes, and ears, in that order, a dog’s sense of smell does not enter

World Of Animals

Recently, I wrote about the importance of not forgetting that humans are also animals. The other side of that is to remember that animals have a lot to teach us. We may be different species and breeds, but what we all have in common is the ability to communicate through energy. October 4 is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, celebrated with the blessing of the animals, since he is their patron saint. It is also World Animal Day, started in 1931 in Florence, Italy — appropriate, since St. Francis is patron saint of that country as well.

Taking A Bite Out Of A dozen Common Dog Myths

There are lots of expressions in many languages that involve dogs in a metaphorical way. “A barking dog seldom bites,” for example, really means the same thing as “all talk and no action.” “Let a sleeping dog lie,” which is probably a good idea when taken literally, figuratively means to not bring up an old argument. Then there are things that people say about dogs that are not true — for example, a dog does not age seven years for every human year; the actual calculation is a little more complicated. Here are the top twelve myths about dogs, debunked.

‘The Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan’ Season 1 Episode Guide

Season 1 | Episode 1 | NuNu and Kane In this episode we meet NuNu the Chihuahua, an adorable, pint-sized hellion. Fiercely territorial, NuNu lets no one near his owner Tina, not even Tina’s housemate, Barclay, the one who convinced Tina to bring the dog home from the rescue shelter. Tipping the scales at 160 lbs, Kane is NuNu’s total opposite. Huge, lanky and…afraid. Ever since taking a bad fall, Kane is afraid of shiny surfaces, such as linoleum floors—so afraid that Marina, his owner, has to bring a carpet with her to get him to enter the school where

‘The Dog Whisperer With Cesar Millan’ Season 2 Episode Guide

Plus, Cesar has his hands full with a pooch with performance anxiety and a leg chomping Chihuahua. It’s a season premiere you can really sink your teeth into. Kid-Aggressive Canines You may wonder why some dogs are very comfortable around adults, but exhibit aggressive behavior towards kids. The truth is that many dogs perceive children differently from the way they see adults. They move differently, walk differently, smell differently, and sound
