Dog Killed in Day Care

Yesterday a dog was found dead in a Day care, the facility has been shut down and can not be named at the present time, as an investigation is underway.  Needless to say, the owners are devastated, their dog was attacked and killed by other dogs. To read the full story click here.

This is very sad and shouldn’t have happened. Boarding Kennels and Doggie Daycare’s. Have a responsibility to look after the dogs in their care.

If the dogs are run together, they should have someone physically present, “standing & watching”, while the dogs are being exercised. To watch out for signs of stress, distress, bullying, aggression etc.

Also small dogs and large dogs shouldn’t be run together, some dogs may see a small dog as prey, and try to kill it. Understanding dog behaviour and body language is a must. It only takes a moment for something bad to happen.

Before you board or send your dog to day care, check out the facility,  and take a few moments to read Boarding Kennel Stress in Dogs: What owners need to know!

Poor guy has a lot of dogs checking him out. Nice dog too. #dogparkThis past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a two-day workshop on dog interactions, dog behavior, aggression and behavior management. One session focused on behaviors often seen at dog parks and doggy daycares. It was eye-opening, mind-expanding and thought-provoking.

One of the key learnings I took away from the seminar had to do with what we often like to think of as “playing” at the dog park. (Hint: Most of what we see at the dog park is not playing.)

When we think of dogs playing, what do we often see them doing? Chasing?  Wrestling? Playing tug? Probably all of those right? But what are we missing?

If you’ve watched any of Sue Sternberg‘s dog park videos, probably a lot. Dogs are always communicating with one another, whether it be before, during or after their interactions with one another. What we consider “play” at the dog park is often not play, but something else, something…
