BBC: Dog language; Play

8 posts in this topic

That is so good! Too many think their dog growling and being really rough and constantly correcting other dogs  is “good social skills”. Good dog social skills are much more subtle!

Nice observations.  Another thing we see .. at least when Border Collies are playing .. is the shake off .. which seems to be a tensions releaser .. used when the play is felt by one or other or both to be amping up a bit much.   The shake off is usually followed by something like a  drinks break, and then followed up by resumption of play.

99% do, so many only remember the few bad eggs, same with dogs too or we wouldn't be seeing people crying after their dog was killed at a dog park,  its funny you are supposed to blame the deed not the breed when the killer is canine, but fine to despise the entire species when the perp is a sapiens?

So true Asal, it's what a lot of racism is based on, attributing an individual's fault to an entire race is common enough: as is extending that to blaming the human race for the faults of some.
