Ever wonder what some of your dog’s quirky behavior might really mean?
Take my dog Chilly. Recently, he’s been stubbornly stopping during our walks to sit in my neighbor’s driveway. He sits, not wanting to proceed, despite my “come” command, (which usually works). What he is trying to tell me?
It’s not the first time I’ve been stymied by a pet’s behavior.
That’s why I was intrigued when I learned about a book called Decoding Your Dog, by certified veterinary behaviorists and Steve Dale pet expert and certified dog and cat behavior consultant.
Recently, I had the chance to Skype chat with Steve in Chicago, which was quite a treat, as I’ve been reading his columns and blogs for over a decade! We spoke about how the book gives insight into the furry minds of our canines and how we can prevent or solve common canine issues.
