    Default Polite Behaviours

    A while ago someone, I think it was Occy, posted something about dog training and included a link to someone's website. There was a little bit on 'polite behaviours'. I tried to find out exactly what this is but to no avail (or I didn't try hard enough!).

    Can anyone shed some light?

    Was it "nothing in life is free"?

    Something to do with dog ettiquette - especially at dog parks? Do you any context for the article - why you want it?

    Yes, dog ettiquette! That's it!

    Im not particularly after the article, just some more info on polite behaviours - i believe looking away was one of them...and yawning? Or am I thinking of something else with that one...?

    It just sounded interesting.

    I've been playing the mirror game with Frosty. I lick my lips and look away, and look back through the corner of my eye to see her doing the same.

    I think there is also sniffing the ground as a diversion thing, not a tracking thing, and yawning definitely works (on people as well as dogs). Not always sure if she's tired or waking up or trying to communicate...
