The Use of Fear Flooding in Dogs and Dog Training

We face fear flooding all the time in normal life as people.  Every time we do something new.  Maybe it is the first time you take your new puppy to puppy class, or maybe that first Dog Agility Trial.  How good you are at handling stress of this nature will certainly impact how easily and quickly you adapt to the circumstances around you.  This is also true of your dog and in fact, if they sense the apprehension in you, it will [More…]

Dog Dylan: Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia, The First Battle to Save Her Life - Detection and Diagnosis

Dog Dylan’s story began March 18, 2011.  She was diagnosed with Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia (AIHA)/Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA) , on March 19th, 2011; when my quest to save her and her second life as an AIHA survivor began.

Observing Canine Behavior Saves Lives

My Bullseye View comes from detailed and objective observation of behavior and the accurate determination of cause and effect, or rather, stimulus and response. When I see something occur, I believe it occurred for a reason, always. If it was not as expected I wonder and try to determine why. If things repeatedly re-occur that way, then I am sure. Then as I see obvious patterns in behavior, I can do two things. One is to rewind the video of what I [More…]

Stress Free: Helping Your Dog See The World In a Better Way

There are a few more who bark incessantly, but are not necessarily blowing a gasket to do so.  Then, in that same mile, there [More…]

Your Dog's Attention and Focus Hold the Key to the Future

A dog is not looking at the world and thinking about other things. They are not thinking about the agility trial next weekend, or training in the yard later. They are not thinking about the view, or how nice the weather is or how great it is to get out and stretch their legs. They are thinking about what they smell, what they hear and what they see. If they were swimming, they might be thinking about what they feel and what [More…]
