The Secrets of Body Language: Why You Should Never Cross Your Arms Again
7K Flares 7K Flares × Body language is older and more innate for us as humans than even language or facial expressions. That’s why people born blind can perform the same body language expressions as people who can see. They come pre-programmed with our brains. I’ve always been incredibly fascinated with body language and how it helps us achieve our goals in life better. “Our nonverbals govern how other people think and feel about us.” If you are anything like me, then you’ve had a healthy obsession with body language for some time. Here is an insight of the latest studies and how we can use body language to our advantage in every day life. Your body expresses emotion better than your face We all grow up learning about how to deal with each other based on facial expressions. Researchers from Princeton performed a very simple experiment.

SPCA patrouille | Animo SPCA patrouille Au Québec, on garde les animaux en moyenne moins de deux ans. Le mois de juillet est encore plus cruel pour eux, en grande partie parce que les propriétaires refusent de plus en plus de louer des appartements à des gens qui possèdent des animaux. Chaque année, la SPCA recueille 10 % de plus d'animaux abandonnés que l’année précédente. Si elle en reçoit en moyenne 600 par mois, ce chiffre triple en juillet. Sébastien Kfoury accompagne un patrouilleur sur le terrain. Comportement : Jean Lessard nous présente FM, un pitbull athlétique dont le propriétaire a trouvé une façon stimulante de canaliser l’énergie débordante en lui faisant pratiquer ce qu’on appelle le parkour. Éleveur : Enjoué, actif et gracieux, l’airedale-terrier est affectueux et drôle, en plus d’être un excellent gardien. L’Éduchateur : L’été est la période des déménagements et le chat, de nature territoriale, ne l’apprécie pas du tout. À voir sur

Aggressive behavior—the making of a definition —by Roger Abrantes Contrary to what you might suppose, aggressive behavior is difficult to define. “Lack of agreement regarding definitions of aggressive behavior has been a significant impediment to the progress of research in this area,” writes Nelson in 2005 in his big book ‘Biology of Aggression.’ Why is a good definition necessary? I have never been quite satisfied with my own definition, and it nags me, worse than a mosquito bite, when I can’t come up with a good definition. Aggressive and dominant behavior (erected ears, short mouth, big eyes) (picture dogsquad). My original definition, let me remind you, was: “Aggressiveness (or aggressive behavior) is behavior directed toward the elimination of competition. Not bad, but could be better. A— “Aggressive behavior is behavior that causes physical or emotional harm to others, or threatens to. Aggressive and submissive behavior (not fearful).

Anyone who has ever had an infirmed, unsocial or elderly dog is going to love The Yellow Dog Project, a global movement for parents of dogs that need space. The concept behind it is quite simple. If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon or other items tied to its leash, that signifies a dog who needs space and you should not attempt to pet the dog or bring your own dog over for a greeting. The Yellow Dog Project has now made its mark in 45 countries and educational materials have been translated into 12 languages. Recently, I was walking my two dogs on some trails behind the local elementary school. Now here I am holding the hand of a small child and balancing two leashes in my hand, trying not to let the dogs tangle or to allow my elderly dog to get any sort of additional stimulation, and this dog comes at us like a bowling ball.

Chiens sur la piste cyclable: La Tuque propose un compromis | Audrey Tremblay | Haute-Mauricie Le maire de La Tuque, Normand Beaudoin, s'est adressé aux nombreux propriétaires de chiens qui s'étaient déplacés afin de se faire entendre. «La situation a fait couler beaucoup d'encre depuis l'adoption du règlement au mois de mai, nous avons reçu plusieurs commentaires et le conseil en a pris connaissance», a lancé d'entrée de jeu le maire avant de proposer un projet-pilote aux citoyens. «La nouvelle piste cyclable est vraiment belle et nous comprenons que tout le monde veut en profiter. Ce terrain d'entente consiste à permettre les chiens sur la piste cyclable uniquement en milieu urbain pour la période estivale 2014. Les chiens demeureront interdits dans la section entre le chemin du Lac-Wayagamac et le parc des Chutes le long de la petite rivière Bostonnais ainsi que dans la section qui s'étend entre le chalet de ski de fond et le parc des Chutes. Si le projet-pilote est concluant, le règlement devrait être modifié à l'automne en prévision de l'été 2015.

Dr. Becker: 10 Reasons Not to Use a Retractable Leash By Dr. Becker A retractable leash is not so much a leash as it is a length of thin cord wound around a spring-loaded device housed inside a plastic handle. The handles of most retractable leashes are designed to fit comfortably in a human hand. A button on the handle controls how much of the cord is extended. Retractable leashes are popular primarily because they aren't as confining as regular leashes, allowing dogs more freedom to sniff and poke around on walks. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. If your dog is well trained, gentle mannered and smart enough to master a regular leash and a retractable leash without being confused, you could be one of the rare guardians that can walk your pooch on any kind of leash without increasing risks to either one of you.

Three Reasons To Reconsider Spay/Neuter The topic of spay/neuter is emotionally charged for many pet owners. It’s become the “responsible” thing to do and we commonly hear of the benefits of this surgery but rarely the risks. And when savvy pet owners forgo or delay spay/neuter to mitigate that risk, they’re frequently vilified for contributing to the pet over population problem. But decisions made on emotion aren’t usually the best kinds of decisions we can make. So indulge me while I take an objective and scientific look at what’s causing all the fuss. In February 2014, a study was completed on over 2500 Vizsla dogs and the results were a blow to those who vehemently defend spay/neuter. We’ll get to the Vizsla study that I mentioned later. Hip Dysplasia Other research shows that dogs sterilized before the age of six months have a 70% increased risk of developing hip dysplasia. There’s even more evidence that spay/neuter can increase the risk of hip dysplasia. Cruciate Ligament Tears Waters et al. FREE Cruciate Tear Guide

Possessive aggression is aggression that is directed toward humans or other pets that approach the dog when it is in possession of something that is highly desirable, such as a favorite chew toy, food, or treat. "Although protecting possessions may be necessary for survival in the wild, it’s unacceptable when directed toward people." Although protecting possessions may be necessary if an animal needs to survive and thrive in the wild, it is unacceptable when directed toward people or other pets in a household. How can possessive aggression be prevented? Teaching puppies when they are young that handling their food and possessions results in good outcomes can help deter possessive behavior. "The goal is to teach the dog that it will receive a favored treat or reward that is even more appealing than the object in its possession." How can I treat my dog if he is possessive with objects and toys?
