We don’t pretend to be expert anythings, but we do believe in sharing information that we have found helpful in our daily rescue efforts. Sometimes that information comes from actual experts, sometimes it just comes from trial and error, and error, and error. So consult your veterinarians, lawyers, accountants, and your astrologer before your consider any of this actual sound advice.

Behavioral and Training Resources For Kids

  • Toddlers and dog video is a guide to get other people’s kids to do what you want around your dog.
  • This is a great informative video that identifies the dog’s cues and language as the dog is trying to communicate its discomfort with a baby jumping on the dog. It is hard to watch the dog clearly giving signs of distress and the adults ignoring the warning signs. It is easier to watch knowing the dog does not eat the child. What a good dog. If I was the dog, I would have eaten the child and then the parents for good measure.
  • “I Speak Dog” body language gallery   (this one is very visual and amazing!)
