Secret Language of Dogs with Victoria Stilwell
Victoria Stilwell on Steve Dale’s Pet World, WGN Radio to discuss her newest book, “The Secret Language of Dogs: Unlocking the Canine Mind for a Happier Pet.” Listen HERE, as whenever I get together with Victoria we have fun, and discuss how dogs sense the world.
Like, why do dogs smell one another’s rear-ends? New research shows that males dogs prefer to say ‘hi’ to other dogs by first sniffing at one another’s behinds. Female dogs prefer to greet one another face to face.
Stilwell, from It’s Me or the Dog on Animal Planet. We talk about so often we misinterpret what dogs are trying to tell us. Now what, Stilwell says, making matters worse, sometimes is the way we respond to what dogs do.
We also talk about positive reinforcement, and what it means.
I also talk about the fructosamine test for dogs and cats to arguably best determine if the pet may be diabetic.
