Dogs + Behavior

  • Play Biting in Puppies

    A menudo se cree que el mordisqueo en los cachorros se debe al cambio de dentición, pero con frecuencia se trata de una forma de juego social. Hay que ofrecer a los cachorros muchas oportunidades para jugar.

  • Fond of children but fierce with trespassing backyard wildlife, adorably small and gigantically courageous, the Cairn Terrier can be hard to pin down.

  • Is there any truth to the old adage, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks?"

  • As befitting a dog that lived on its own, The Canaan Dog is aloof toward strangers, including strange dogs. Protective of family and a natural guardian, Canaan Dogs may bark a lot but are smart, devoted, and willing to please.

  • Extremely loyal and willing to please, Cane Corsos are very protective of home and family. They’re highly intelligent, even-minded and stable, and stay close to their masters.

  • Dogs are smart. But how did they get that way and just how smart are they? Here are a few of the tests that canine behaviorists may perform in controlled laboratory settings aimed at learning more about how dogs learn and how much they learn and how often they apply what they’ve learned to certain situations.

  • Dog communication uses most of the senses, including smells, sounds and visual cues. Pheromones, glandular secretions, barks, whines, yips, growls, body postures, etc., all serve as effective means of communication between dogs. Unlike in people, canine body postures and olfactory (scent) cues are significant components of dog language and vocal communications are less significant. People are listeners; dogs are watchers.

  • People often confuse the Cardigan Welsh Corgi with the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, but the tail of the Cardi (or lack thereof with the Pem) is a dead giveaway. These long-bodied, vertically-challenged dogs are confident individuals who, like many herding breeds, are somewhat reserved with strangers but totally devoted to their families and chosen friends.

  • Spraying is the deposition of small amounts of urine on vertical surfaces. In most cases, the spraying cat will back into the area, the tail may quiver, and with little or no crouching, will urinate.

  • The aristocratic but playfully affectionate Cavalier King Charles Spaniel looks like he leapt straight out of a Renaissance painting. Sweet and docile, cuddly and adaptable, Cavaliers can be anything you want them to be.
