Attention Games

Posted on Wednesday, February 20, 2013 5:40 PM

How many times have you sat down, intent upon a program or news bulletin on the television, when suddenly your arm is forced into the air by your dog wanting to be petted?


In most cases, we respond immediately partly because if we don't, we know the dog will persevere and interrupt our viewing and partly because we don't want the dog to think that we do not want to show him any affection. If truth were known, we are flattered by the display of affection the DOG is showing us.


What is actually happening is; the DOG has decided WHO is going to stroke him/her, WHEN they will get stroked and HOW LONG the interaction will go on for. If you called your dog over to you during the evening, it is quite possible you would get a look, a stretch and groan, but other than that, no response. You probably smile and take the view that YOU let sleeping dogs lie.

Yeah, keep telling yourself that, ok.

"Dr. Brother Hackett, our vet., recommended Larry to us to get Bubs, our 8 year old snauzer, to behave. Larry came to our home once weekly for 4 weeks & Bubs is a new dog. Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?"
