Who Is Being Safer?
Now that you have looked at the site and hopefully have learned a bit more about dog safety, take a look at the following pictures. Who is being safer? What body language do you see in the dogs?
In the above pictures, the children are in a position where the dogs are not comfortable. Look at the stiffness in the dogs.
For more videos and pictures of similar situations, please visit these pages on West Wind Dog Training’s blog.
The above two pictures show a dog who willingly put her head in the child’s lap (that is my daughter Sarah when she was in preschool). The last picture is Connor when he was about six and was working our old D’Argo in Agility.
