I went to school with a kid who was a proper sociopath type, very charismatic and manipulative and off the rails. We lost touch with him after he slapped his mrs about. It turns out he’s gone on to become one of these dog whisperers and is in high demand earning a fortune. Life ain’t fair!

Dogs like and react to routines, they develop reactions to them.
Dogs can learn tricks and activities.
Dogs can Feel, they show emotions
Dogs can sense emotion and feelings in each othre

Does that mean Dogs can think? I don't think so no, Dogs are instinctive and reactive not proactive and creative.

Cheers Willtell and Bungo,

My dog get's plenty of exercise 2+ hrs per day), much of it off the lead ball chasing, but as soon as she's back on she'll pull again. I've tried what you suggest but it doesn't work.

We haven't as yet but I am convinced that we just need to put the necessary time and effort in to train her.

The vast majority of the time she is on a lead, she is on the way to a walk in the park, so trying to train her then is almost certainly the worst possible time, as pre-walk excitement is at its peak.

I believe we need to spend time on dedicated lead training that is not connected to walks. I understand this is the way forward.

You've clearly got the extreme hots for me - any excuse for you to get my attention and you'll use it.

What makes you so certain that my mud hut isn't already finished but I'm not living in it?

Re: Do dogs think? πŸ€”
It takes time to stop them pulling but you have to remember that most dogs only get one walk a day around streets and on their leash to restrain them. So they are excited and anxious to run which is their natural state. They have energy to burn.

My advice is to take them to somewhere regularly where they can be let off the lead to burn up some of their energy before teaching them to walk at your pace.

One of the most common reasons dogs pull on their lead is because they’ve learned that’s how they get to move forward and when they are full of energy they want to go for it. Whenever your dog pulls, you taking just one step with them gives a clear signal that pulling works so they are controlling you and want you to go at their pace.

Once you realise that's how dogs see it you need to stop and stand still instead of taking that first step. Tell it to sit and make a fuss of it. Give it a treat for sitting then when it's paying attention to you, take a step. If your dog then pulls immediately you need patience to make it stop and sit again. It's better done after their pent up energy has been burned off.

I have a rescue dog that was 14 months old and is now about 18 months old. I am guessing she's a cross between a Lab and a Greyhound. Slimmer and taller than most black Labs she is so fit and at first was a nightmare puller.

A trainer at the kennels spent some time with us in a fenced off compound showing us how to do it. Her instincts are to run so burning off her energy first always works best. She has a morning 1/2 hour running off lead around neighbouring open land and is happy to come and go back on the lead.

Her evening walk is always on a lead on a promenade where she gets to socialise with other dogs and people so we are in an ideal environment that you probably can't replicate in London or suburbia. She is just about getting used to being more relaxed on the evening walk and after the first minute or two wanting to pull she has learnt that she goes at my pace...

My Springer pulls like an arctic icebreaker. Have you manged to stop yours, if so, how?

My favorite dog joke.

What's the difference between your wife and your dog -

If you lock them both in the boot of your car for four hours, when you let them out your dog will be delighted to see you.

And my favourite dog related life advice.

Try to be the person that your dog thinks you are.

Ray,
Pull out of it,nobody’s suggesting hounds thoughts are aligned to us.Trying to be decent parents,pay mortgages, sacrifice almost everything for the kids.
Pulling your hair out with teenage daughters……………,,..,the list goes on.
From my vast experience of dog ownership (gsp”s)most dod owners appreciate the fact that dogs are brilliant family pets that only adds to a family structure.

I genuinely dont think anyone really knows what goes on beyond their own thoughts and I’m sure thats true for dogs. There are evolutionary payoffs.

Re: Do dogs think? πŸ€”
Yes, dogs do think, but their thought processes are different from humans. They have cognitive abilities and can make decisions, learn from experiences, and solve simple problems. However, their thinking is primarily based on instinct and sensory perception, rather than complex abstract thoughts like humans.

A wolf pack will know about the past and look to the future.no reason to think that dogs dont. Dogs also communicate a lot with shit and piss as well as barking, growling etc. they must be thinking when smelling shit and poss.

Re: Do dogs think? πŸ€”
Dogs live in the moment. They accept whatever happens to them as they have no past history nor future aims to compare the present events to.

Add in the inability to speak so they are not very good at reasoning which is what the real question means I think.

Their lack of reason and inability to think much allows them to loyally stick to their owners for food and a bit of exercise. Can you imagine how bad they’d be if they started to think like wives?
