    I will be blogging a new series of articles on 'crazy' dog behaviour over the coming days/weeks :)

    Lots of stuff relevant to lots of topics brought up here on a daily basis ;) so hope to help lots and lots of pets & people.

    The intro is up as well as Under Pressure which is an introduction to some of the issues behind crazy behaviour (anxiety, stress, impulse control).

    Lots more on implementing calming protocols and exercises coming!

    Love to hear your comments and suggestions :)

    Looks like it will be very useful, pity you can't put it directly on here, I find that a lot of people never look at links :(

    I think it sounds like a great idea, but I suppose you could do it with links if you are not allowed to post it directly.

    Having been on these boards for a few months now, it is really the same issues that arise again and again and to be honest, I keep thinking 'that has all been explained before'.....

    Something a bit more permanent is brilliant.

    I love the info on your site Tripod, so realistic and easy to understand.

    Absolutely stunning, thank you so much Tripod!

    very very useful to me as I am about to embark on tackling some of Merlin's reactive issues with a behaviourist... She has asked that he has a 2-week 'safe history' meaning no reactions to triggers for a minimum of 2 weeks before she starts work with us. I wasn't sure why but your blog has explained it perfectly, thank you!
