DogDaz Fearful Friday: Resources

08 Aug

Many of you know that Louise is a fearful dog.  She needs more space and time than many other dogs for many reasons.  Nothing is ‘wrong’ with Louise, that is just who she is.  I try really hard to work with her fears, not to change her, but to make her life easier.  If you have a fearful dog, you might want to check out this wonderful blog called DINOS (DogsInNeedOfSpace.com).

The following is a great resource list direct reblog from DINOS.  If you are not familiar with them please check them out at dogsinneedofspace.com

Read + Watch

Below you’ll find a list of books, articles, blogs, and videos recommended by Team DINOS on Facebook – everyone from shelter workers to dog trainers pitched in to recommend their top picks for resources that have been helpful for their DINOS. Every dog is an individual and there are many types of DINOS, so please keep in mind that what works for one DINOS family, may not work for another.

This list is always expanding, so be sure to check back and if you’d like to recommend a book, blog, or video, please let me know:info@notesfromadogwalker.com

Please note that being included in this list is not an endorsement by DINOS™  or this website.

      Here are some books you can read to Mommy. Not sure they would go over well in school though

    I liked to read about the body language and the facial expressions, it’s good when you can “read your dog”, so you can take action before something happens. Thanks for all the great links!

      Body language is so important. I am always watching the ears and the tails. Have a great weekend.

    Have you heard of The Yellow Dog Project? Here’s a link to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/TheYellowDogProject. It’s all about putting a yellow ribbon on the leashes of dogs who need a little extra space (or having a yellow leash, etc.). The idea is that other people will see the leash/ribbon and know to give the dog some room. I sure wish this would catch on more. We had a terrier mix, Lexi, who was very reactive when she was on her leash. When we walked, I was constantly having to tell people that she didn’t like to have her space invaded.

      Thank you and yes we have. Education is key with the ribbons dice people still don’t know what they mean.
