    When Asher is looking for love, what does he do? Does he come up to you and demand attention (however innocently) or does he whimper for it?

    Personally, I withhold my attention when a dog does this to me, they get attention when I call them to give attention to them. I wait till the dog has walked away and is distracted by something else or has laid down. For me and in my experience this has mad training a dream. It makes the dogs that much more willing to do what I am asking of them because they are getting my attention as well as the treat. It also helps to solidify the recall Again, this is in my experience with both fosters/rescues and my current pup.
    Yeah I wasn't in the mood.
    Im still not in the mood.

    No he doesn't whimper. He sits there with his gentle eyes waiting for me to notice him. He even jumps up and put his paws on my shoulders as if he's asking for hugs.

    I know there must be some other explanation but I like to think my dog loves me. What's that joke that is often emailed around? Lock your husband/wife and your dog in the car boot for a couple hours. When you go back to let them out who is going to be the happiest to see you?

    Seeking love, sensing moods that most dogs do, mine included has nothing to do with the logic and reasoning that some owners attribute that their brains do and so they baby and ruin their dogs.

    eg, every whimper is interpreted as what the owner thinks he or she would think, feel in a situation. Dogs do not think situations through, reach a conclusion and do their behaviours.

    They thrive on instinct and conditioning to their situations.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    My nextdoor neighbour's little jack russell x got stuck into their easter eggs when they weren't home last year. She survived but was a very sick little dog for about a week or so before she started recovering.

    Myth: Every brindle dog is related to the Pitbull which is considered a dangerous dog. Not a safe choice of dog especially for a family.

    I am reading a book atm called "Dog Training for Dummies". I've only started so have lots to cover and learn, but so far I have read that the author believes a dog's behaviour is a reflection of your training. Does that include when a dog shows aggression? Is there really such thing as a rogue that just refuses to be trained, or a loyal family pet turning on their family for no reason.
