I’ve been to a lot of dog-related seminars, and, at every one, the female/male ratio is something like 90/10. Or 95/5. I thought it would be different at the Im-PECK-able seminar put on by K9 Behavior Consortium, thinking of all the guys I’ve run into over the years with law enforcement dogs, especially drug and […] The post Guys: We Need You In Dog Training Seminars appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

I was working on a post this morning (It begins: “I may be an idiot for bringing this up, but I can’t help myself . . .”), and then a dental adventure took up too much time and energy, so I’ll post it next week. Promise. So, it’s all about spring and the farm today. […] The post Spring is Busting Out All O-o-o-o-ver! appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

Well, how fun was that? Last weekend I was at the “Im-PECK-able Training Seminar” put on by Craig Schultz and Sally Dickinson for the K9 Behavior Consortium in Manassas, VA. I went primarily to learn more about sniffer dogs for my next mystery novel (wheeeee!), but reveled in spending time with some great dogs, and […] The post Sniffing Out Scent Dog Training appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

Behavioral or Medical? Or both?

I recently had a great talk with Emily Priestley, the author of Urban Sheepdogs. I reviewed her book a few weeks ago, and although I noted some issues, I am a big fan of her attempt to help people understand that the behavior of their border collies or cattle dogs is not a mystery or […] The post Behavioral or Medical?

Last week a dear friend brought her teenage Bernedoodle, Leo, over to meet Skip and Maggie. Leo was like Sheldon at a Comic Con Convention (can you tell I’ve been watching Big Bang Theory?)–all enthusiasm and no social finesse. This is Maggie after he tried to mount her head. (Please supply caption.) In spite of […] The post March 11, 2024 appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

                  I don’t pretend to be able to keep up with all the dog/animal behavior books being published right now, but two books got my attention this week that I thought you might find interesting. In some ways, they couldn’t be much different from each other. Who’s […] The post Book Reviews: Who’s a Good Dog? & Urban Sheepdogs appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

Winter Get Away in Jamaica

We’re just back from a week in Jamaica. Good to go, good to be home. Usually winter trips around here are motivated by a desire to escape the cold. Not this time, I think it was in the 50’s when we left. We basically had about two weeks of real winter–very cold, lots of snow–but […] The post Winter Get Away in Jamaica appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

Dark Eyes in Dogs, or Light? (& Other Preferences About Looks)

I just read a fascinating article in the Royal Society Open Journal  finding that dark-eyed dogs were rated friendlier and less mature than light-eyed dogs by people viewing photos of just their eyes and muzzle. It included dogs of multiple breeds, whose images had eyes that had been both darkened and lightened (toward yellow, not […] The post Dark Eyes in Dogs, or Light?

How Dog Training and Editing are the Same.

  Continuing my ability to relate just about everything in the world to dog training, I offer you some thoughts about how good editing is like good dog training.  For example, here is a typical editing progression, starting with:              “I really think that dog is too hot to keep working.” Eeeps, delete the “really”: […] The post How Dog Training and Editing are the Same. appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more

The 5 Things Our Dogs Want for the Holidays

While feeling a bit reflective, and thinking about what to write today, I went into the archives to see what I’d written this month ten years ago. I ran into this post, which I’d forgotten about, and decided it deserved to come out of moth balls, like some Christmas tree decorations stashed in the back […] The post The 5 Things Our Dogs Want for the Holidays appeared first on The Other End of the Leash ..read more
