The good gentle perfect dog which loves children
can suddenly show his teeth, devouring his master or anyone ariving in or
passing there. Why? should we really ask ourselves when the good friendly
and polite neighbor, appreciated by everyone, suddenly pulls out a gun and
shot his family or someone he can no longer stand! no one knows what may
happen with a dog like ourselves. The dog is not a fellow who understands
us. It is not part of the family, but live in a group of animals (us),
and knows more or less what some rules he has to follow to live with. But it
can occur that, from his point, these rules are not respected.
This dog is seemingly joking, but doesn't play more than
the circus sea lion who does his job to eat and sleep. This does not means he
never plays a little, but perhaps much to measure or test us. A scientist has
integrated a group of dolphins in the purpose to studying them. After some time,
intrigued by their behavior, he realized that it was the dolphins who made him
do things to test him !
Animals go through life as ourselves: they know jealousy,
dominance, submission, revenge, neglect, depression of up to the disease
(skin often, but glands). Left "child care" during our vacation, our cat did
not want to see us for two days. Probably not for the reasons we imagine!
"The dog does not play when it reported a stick when snorting drugs,
when he produced circus or when he saves someone an earthquake. He wants
to show he has worked and should be rewarded. All issues of dressage are
based on this principle - a principle that we pretend to ignore - and even
reward the reward of simply going to do. The cat rubs all around
front of the fridge does not expect the food, it marks its territory.
The catthat makes you mouth because you left it alone for your
getaway, do you want because it was free at home and your return brings him

to leave them old, and a garment they will also leave the reassuring

Provide a little exercise for cats. Since there is little room in an
apartment, it is suggested to design courses that will allow the vertical
rise and cat down without damage. For example, they promote access to the
top of the cabinet or furniture by providing intermediate stages on which
they will build (hot seat, stool, small wall shelf ..). I was so determined
to make our board a cat can get out through the window by jumping first on a
sink. It can change their life (and ours too). See also below "Travel"
Communication between animals. It is sometimes complex and each species has
its own techniques. Those who are blind communicate by sounds (moles
galleries clap up to point), squid, who are deaf, produce light variations
almost psychedelic electronic, others emit ultrasonic (all marine mammals,
thirty listed). Well, almost all animals have a language of gestures,
attitudes, body movements, facial expressions). You may not be a squid at
home and only domestic animals that are the favorite dogs and cats will be
We do not understand animals. In other words, so far everything is
normal since we do not we already understand ourselves and still less
between opposite sex (the word is doubly appropriate). Many of us,
especially those who dedicate their worship excessive, consider a bit like
themselves. We suffer with them and losing them is a test on a par with a
loved one. It is said to prefer them to humans because they have no voice
and are faithful. In fact, we need all living things on earth to live well
ourselves: nature, sky, rocks, vegetation, plants. Yes, but it is mostly on
the lookout for animals. Finally, not all (much less insects ..). What we

have transformed the animal toys, to make fun of in cartoons, to force them
to play the clown. Want to have an animal that no one he will get rid of
quickly. The creator of Flipper the dolphin came back and now campaigns
against the dolphins marineland the world after seeing his own death and
especially after seeing how they are fished. The gain amounts at the end
of the string to a million dollars / year by trained dolphins. A movie
like Nemo has dramatically increased the "taking" of these fish, turning

unfortunately not alone.
had goldfish raised in captivity and in principle conditioned to their condition, it has always ended badly. we were able to study all the
behaviors, characteristics, strong the weak, the depressed, the settling of
scores, the gluttony of animals that have nothing else to do. I tried a
little of everything, even to put a mirror in front of which the last spent
hours swimming in front of the mirror that the intruder could not touch. He
had learned to drive off the water with his mouth to call my attention every
time he knew I was going to turn the corner of the wall. A fish has the same
benign intelligence than other animals. They are capable of touching,
rubbing with complex movements.
Animals do not share our socialization that we tend to take for granted by
the mere fact they are domesticated. So the subject, our problem is not to
understand our friends the animals that provide them - very young - a social
life together that will allow a compatible, if not in harmony. According
to veterinarians and breeders, instead of an animal in the family and home
(location) must be clearly defined and respected. We do not caress an
animal when he eats and "the corner" should not be invaded. He has his home,
including meals. The reverse is true when you eat, its presence is not
desirable. The training and socialization if you prefer to switch reprimand
(to put it out or locked) and reward (treat, but gently on sugar, very bad).
If major problems, consult a veterinarian or a breeder.
What are the most common problems? - People think they must treat the
puppy or dog as if it were a human child.
Dogs that have been abused or neglected do not understand that life can
be less frightening than they believe.
Dogs bear even less than cats to be abandoned for hours and there are many
manifestations of discontent, if not damage and endless barking. If you were
locked up alone (e) all day without being certain (e) that someone will come
back, you would understand better than the dog barks all day.
Pets left alone: a veterinarian suggested leaving them with something that
moves, ball, or make mobile search, and finally any object likely to react
in their action, it also suggests ribbons placed in an air stream. but the

we say that a turtle can agree, and
it is less delicate. It is true that it does not jump or noise .. chew some
shoes of their masters / mistresses ..
They do not like being disturbed at an inconvenient time, such a meal,
let alone where they feel they are at home. For the quip "I live with my
dog" or my cat, is a harsh reality. Another is that interest and in
particular the room and board, just like us. And if they seem grateful is
all about and why they do what it takes for counting. Otherwise, they go
very badly, like us. They - like us - the deeply rooted concept of
territory, they mark it and defend it consistently. They recognize,
however, the legal ownership as we have organized! going to say a fly that
you are at home, you paid for it with a notary and does not enter. For
animals, nature is free and everyone must make its way on its own
possibilities (for subsistence). Admit that we are also like this because if
we like to have, we are equally frustrated not being able to move around
freely and not be able to access at all in some places, the most interesting
addition. They do not tolerate being alone and abandoned, locked up
without seeing anything for days.
I can not reproduce what veterinarians or trainers have said in the media of
all kinds, but I invite you to listen to them and the people who ask
questions. I give just a brief extract, significant enough of a book "I
talk to animals"; Frederic Chesneau "
quote "They are full of awkward love, that the vitality of their animals to
intimidate, or for other reasons, I often see homeowners overwhelmed by
their animals. They do not want to do well, but the rabbit midget bites,
the snake's attack, the sulking cat, the dog pushes the bed ... It is
fortunately rare that the situation turns tragic, but this discomfort every
day is not easy to live so far .. " . "Problems often arise,
paradoxically, of too great respect. As we feel guilty of depriving an
animal of what is believed to be the wild or found too cruel to impose a
poodle a five pound toy is left to do, and the situation degenerates. Or it
is believed, wrongly, that because he provides food and shelter and that he
spends all his whims, the animal recognizes applies itself to comply with
our rules of human ...
So it will simply
conclude that he is the master of the house and the situation
since it obeys him!
However, to gain respect (not understand), the same conclusion applies to
all these specialists: no violence (hitting, screaming) the animal may
include, but firmly. When it hurts (for us) out! in constantly renewed until
it was closer to him, did not end.
Repentance or submission? here's a classic true story. I quote
"The dog devours everything when he is left alone (shoes, sofa ..) even
if it is with another animal. On the way back, furious, I see that
he understands, because it takes a look guilty and sheepishly. "
Laetitia B, veterinarian, RMC said: "No,
he does not know why because there is no reconciliation.
He sees only that you are angry and take a submissive attitude. And
he understands even less than, accepting this submission to you, your
dissatisfaction does not stop.

it on the fact (not type).
In the worst misunderstandings, some dogs can attack and even kill
Do not pamper before you leave or return. Ignore as you add to your
stress by recognizing it. As for repentance, it has no meaning for
him. It should only learn what they can do or not do to live in harmony.
Reciprocity is also expected. We act the same, but that's another debate.
Laetitia B, vet, tells the story of a dog that, when there were guests,
went to get stones and swallowed. His master then entered on games,
taking away. But it also annoyed the guests, not to mention the risk of
bowel obstruction in the dog. This is a variation of typical cases: the
animal is seeking to regain its importance temporarily lost.
What to do? what they say: the only solution is a temporary isolation.
Respect for "the corner", especially with meals. No meals together, each
in his corner, preferably before we and other animals during this time.
No animal in the kitchen when preparing meals. Possible isolation of the
animal when it receives or progressive admission he admits to the newcomers
of the pack. The animal is not the master of the house and when he
believes he attacked the postman or anyone who comes along. It can just
as easily attack sharply after several years. It's all about circumstance as
for ourselves, there is a time when enough is enough for them too, the
problem is they do not speak. A man has been attacked by his own well-trained
dog, on his way home! the problems of children is particularly crucial, as
we know. They must be recognized too. Source. Listen to broadcasts on RMC on Sunday morning (Laetitia B..)

Picking up crops.
Here is a model designed by Christian: a plastic bottle cut out. I cut
myself a bottle of milk to achieve his own description.
Simple but clever.
I would only add that we can keep the cutout part - the bottom of the bottle -
to help pushing the dirt in the bottle. The whole can be placed in a paper/plastic bag
until it can get rid of.
