Sick subject about which dog lovers do not like to speak. But it is impossible to hush up. You need to understand the causes of problems and know how to avoid them.
Aggression itself is considered the most important problem in the relationship of people and dogs. But nothing causes so sharp aversion as aggression on a child. The hysteria of the media and, as a result, the fear and hatred of the public, nothing inflates stronger than the cases of dogs attacking children. In that hysteria, it is forgotten about the reasons that led to the aggression, for the dog simply there are no facilitating circumstances. Moreover, in the overwhelming majority of cases, tragedies could easily have been avoided. Elementary measures of caution and at least a minimum of knowledge about the psyche of dogs would have happened and nothing bad would have happened. Continue reading
For all the years of walking a free pack in the city, there was only one pokus, and because of a misunderstanding between a dog and a man, and in which there was no guilt from either side. Here is how it was. One clear winter day, we walked in the back of a small market, trying to get around the bus stop that was crowded with people. At the same time, between the tents of the market, a citizen was in a hurry to stop.

Dogs have their bad habits, and even the most educated dog can not sometimes hold out so as not to pick up a bone in a container or roll out in rotten stuff. From the point of view of the dog, everything is normal and natural: why would she pass by nutritious and tasty (in her opinion) products or would she deny herself the pleasure of trying exclusive perfumes?

For many years I have fought with dogs in vain, trying to wean them off collecting garbage. My fear was completely justified, because my Bianca died precisely because of poisoning with rat poison. Continue reading
In the pack of wolves (in fact, this family) reigns peace and harmony. The young generation with tenderness and understanding is brought up in conditions of minimum restrictions, there are simply no reasons for serious conflicts and no rigid frameworks limiting the behavior of wolves. A puppy caught in a society of people, from early childhood begins to be limited to the natural manifestations of their behavior. We, people, have a solid “no”, especially when kept in an apartment. Constant restrictions and prohibitions put pressure on the puppy’s psyche, causing permanent stress. Due to the plastic nature of the dog, they adapt to our numerous requirements and rules, often completely unnatural in its canine nature. Continue reading
You will be surprised how dogs are plastic and adaptable in everything that concerns people. As far as they, unlike us, are tolerant to those who look different and behave differently than they. Evolution in nature is aimed at eliminating (eliminating) representatives of the species that look differently than others — remember the notorious white crow. The consequence of this old-age instinct — to reject everyone who looks different, who otherwise behaves, is xenophobia in humans and animals. Continue reading
