🛇 Use your Manners! 🛇
The Sniff test - Stop doing that!
The sniff test - a badly engrained habit that society has been taught, without a clear understanding of what they're actually doing.

🚩When you reach out towards a dog, you are using body pressure AT them, giving them no time to assess whether you are safe & whether they require further investigation to pick up your information. You are forcing an interaction of a relationship that hasn't had time to develop. To some dogs, this is quite rude & the reason a lot of dogs snap at or bite people. This can cause alot of behavioral issues because of layered stress due to forced interactions.

🚩If they are on lead, they have no where to go if they are sensitive to spacial pressure, so can end up shutting down, shying away or snapping at your hand so you back off. This is an example of how a dog is now using pressure to turn off pressure & make you back off so they aren't so stressed.

🚩People think by offering your hand it can give the dog time to sniff to know you're friendly... they can sniff without being forced to sniff your hand.Their noses are far more superior than ours & they don't need close contact forced upon them to smell you.

🚩Some dogs might not want to know you. You have no relationship with them and that's perfectly fine. They aren't your dog so you don't need to touch them or steal pats for your own satisfaction.

🤔 If you are meeting a dog, what should you do?
⚠Ask the owner if you can interact with their dog. Not all people want strangers touching their dogs. Especially strangers who you are unlikely to see again.
⚠Stand up straight & relaxed, with your hands at your side.
⚠Ignore the dog & talk to the owner.
⚠Don't stare at the dog & don't try to force an interaction by going in for a pat. If the dog wants to know you, it will come up to you & sniff around. Usually they will move away & then come back for a second sniffathon. Some dogs will bunt your hands & wag their tails, which are good signs that you're likely an accepted new friend. Give them a few slow pats down their back (NOT THEIR HEAD) & then stop. Is the dog happy? Has it accepted your interaction? This will determine whether you can give it more pats.

🐶This is a more stress free option for dogs & a reason why in consultations we can develop a good level of trust, especially with fearful dogs & aggressive dogs, without a bunch of negative side effects from forced interactions.

"I wanted people to think about their relationship with dogs, and sometimes our relationship with dogs is informed by culture and history, where you come from and what your background is.” —Interior Decorator Sheila Bridges on including this photo in her Salon des Chiens in the Kips Bay Designer Showcase

FYI:

If you find a pet with tags on you can get the owner info from the automated line 24/7::
If the pet is wearing a Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) license tag, call the number on the tag (206-296-2712) and have the six-digit license number available. When you call, you will either reach our pet licensing staff or our automated voice response system. Give the license number to our staff, or enter the number when prompted by the automated system. You will be given the pet owner's phone number so you can contact them directly to return their pet.

Another brilliant one from @ScottMetzgerCartoons. As the old saying goes, "It's funny because it's true!"

With the holidays approaching, master marketing forces beyond our control are getting under our skin like a hungry tick. We know ...

Happy holidays friends! We are reaching out to you to ask for help. As you probably know, most of our dogs come to us from high-kill shelters in California. Unfortunately, so many people have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that it is becoming more difficult and more expensive to safely transport dogs in need. The cost for transport and vetting of dogs is about $150-$450 per dog. Unfortunately, shelters in California are still full and the need in the area is not there.

If you are able to donate any funds to Puget Sound Rescue, they will go towards the transportation and veterinary care costs of dogs in need. We are a 501c3 nonprofit and all donations are tax deductible. If you are interested, you can donate online via PayPal at http://www.pugetsoundrescue.org/donate.html. Or, you can contact us at [email protected] for other options. If you have any questions, please direct them to the email address - we do NOT frequently monitor Facebook.

This is Trixie, she is one of the dogs that is currently in a California shelter hoping to get transported up to Washington.

I respect and admire Victorial Stillwell so much. This post is very timely

Have you ever received negative comments or been bullied on social media? If you have then you understand how bad it can make you feel and how damaging it can be. This week’s post is not about dogs, but this is a conversation we all need to be having right now, and that is why I am sharing what has happened to me since I became known in the media world.https://positively.com/victorias-blog/social-bullying/

No one can truly understand what it’s like to be on a dog meat farm until they have experienced it for themselves. I’ve assisted on multiple US based puppy mill and dog fighting busts and rescues, and I thought I’d seen it all, but as I looked into the eyes of the Asian meat dogs, I realized that I hadn’t. Whatever cruelty and neglect I had seen, this was ten times worse. https://positively.com/victorias-blog/the-dog-meat-farms-of-south-korea/
