    #27 @Lyon Brave my Zanzi is a lover not a fighter. She likes to clear away squirrels and birds from our path, she seems to find it fun to make them skedaddle, but she is not keen to initiate an actual altercation.

    I feed her lots of duck. We lived for 4 years next to a park with a lot of ducks because it had a very large 'pond-like' water feature. She learned that I let her chase off crows, but not ducks. The thing I could not get her to give up, though, was rolling in fresh duck poop on the occasions when they went on the grass, not in the water....

    We are still in the process of learning to agree to disagree on that aspect of our partnership!

    #26 @Ali Anani - Your buzzes do precisely that - uncover faulty assumptions that we have derived when we neglect to consult nature. You are such a sage writer who so easily opens our eyes to the natural intelligence all around us.

    And that is what I like to do with our dogs. We spend time with them everyday, but often don't plainly see how smart they truly are, simply because they are missing a set of vocal chords.

    #25 I have been pondering about these sense of smell posts for awhile, @Deb🐝 Lange. My sense of smell is my current Achilles heel...

    In that article they meant dogs smelling UTIs. Well, in my book I wrote about the fact that I observed that my dog had a UTI and the response that I got from the Vet was the last trip I ever made to a conventional Vet. He treated me with derision, said I couldn't possibly know that, and didn't even have the decency to phone me directly when the test results came back that she did have a UTI....

    As you so clearly know, we discount so much of the information we get from our senses at our own peril. We would be wise to start noticing how much actual information we get from our dogs.

    I always learn about the first spring daffodils a few days before they break the ground, as Zanzi starts sniffing a patch of dirt....

    Great buzz @Deb 🐝 Helfrich and I enjoyed reading it tremendously and so shared it.
    The comments revealed my opinion n the high quality of your post. What I may add here is your writing
    "If we start to realize how inaccurate a great deal of current training advice is, we might also wonder if our current beliefs about most of our dogs capabilities is accurate". OI believe the same applies to many other training. This is a common faulty training based on faulty assumptions

    #22 That is a great question, @Wayne Yoshida. And a Xmas gift for me to get started on my Jan dog post....

    We know people have different learning styles and canines as a separate species have a different sensory order and differences within each breed and individual dogs. So the method itself is still at the core, but some dogs are sight 'hounds' and hand signals would be the easiest way to get them trained, rather than vocal commands, because of course, we humans are all about varying how we say things, some dogs are great at separating all the noise of our yammering on from the signal of the command, others will end up tuning us out, because our voice commands always come in fully grammatical sentences. I ran on to prove my point.

    I exert all the influence in my house by putting my hand in my left pocket or executing a thumb's up. This would not work as well in a large household because the dog wouldn't have only one person to focus on.

    The wolf wiring fallacy as I see it has to do with the 'must be an alpha' mindset. Even when that dominance is positive, the way actual wolves and actual dogs learn best is observe and cooperate. Fighting for status is really dangerous in the wild outside of official matters like mating.

    Bad dogs are just ones who aren't sure how to cooperate, as they are being judged on human concepts, like being the first through a door - that is not a license to 'take charge' on a walk in a dog's mind. That is a ludicrous assumption, but even professional dog trainers swear by that. Exactly how many door situations did wolves encounter as they formed this inbred urge to observe order through a threshold as a sign of pack hierarchy?

    My 2000 characters must be close....

    Thanks Deb! As I read this, I thought about all the dogs in my life and family and their behaviors. We always had ones that would listen/obey (the "good dogs"), and some would ignore our commands ("the bad dogs"). I attributed that to the "spoilers" in our family that would destroy the good behaviors. I have always based my training to use stimulus/response/positive reinforcement. Is this outdated and based on wolf wiring?

    #20 I am sure your kat has a great deal of intelligence, but I am rather certain no one will ever be able to get one to voluntarily hang out in an MRI machine in order to really see what is going on in their heads... :) I got to spend some time with a couple kittens earlier this year and they were rather amazing. I shared some of Zanzi's toys and each one ended up actually preferring a different dog toy than the bog standard little mice they were supposed to prefer. They also were great at accurately telling me when I should take ownership of my role of being their 4th back-up feeder. I also found it fascinating how the much smaller sister was 10 times as brave when it came to interacting with me and Zanzi.

    #9 Thanks for sharing that your 3 dogs in your household @Franciane Nunes Paciência Torres have episodic memory.

    I am certain 'proof' it is happening in homes all over the world, but we repeat the incorrect assumption that dog's brains don't have 'higher' functions and we neglect to notice just how complex their behavior can be, simply because they don't strike up a conversation to challenge our faulty beliefs!
    Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    26/11/2016 #13 Deb 🐝 Helfrich
    #8 I have some familiarity with Tolle, but I did not know he had a very prominent series of talks with Cesar Millan. It prepopulated when I googled. Ummm.....

    I have a complex relationship with Mr. Dog Whisperer. Let me unequivocally state that he is a very present man, in tune with his own energy, and I respect his ability with aggressive dogs. BUT I believe that his theories are harmful to the average house dog. Except for the part that you will ultimately have a better adjusted dog if you let other dogs play a role in your dog's development.

    My life with dogs has been a little n=2 experiment, as detailed in my book, that really highlights that each dog is as individual as each person and that there are similar nurture versus nature tensions that contribute to the overall behavior of the canine being.

    Dog training theories derived from Wolf Pack behavior just don't add up. The reason they came to prominence was the dearth of actual research on either wild wolves or domestic dogs. The maladjusted behavior of captive wolves provides inaccurate models for both species. In is gratifying to see that we are now getting data to support what I saw in my own household.

    We are companions, not leader and submissive follower. I do often have a cognitive upper hand that I try to wield with lovingkindness, minus the occasional lapse into verbal shenanigans.

    #3 Interesting names, @Gert Scholtz. You will appreciate that my girls - Tangenyika and Zanzibar - were named because of my affinity with Tanzania.

    I think we have to give them names that we want to say millions of times and that register the joy we have in our hearts.

    The thing that I found curious is that almost all my vets knew the source of Tangenyika when most everyone else had no idea where I came up with that name. Whereas Zanzi is easily attributed to Zanzibar.

    One of my upcoming buzzes with be about the dogs of Pemba, who have been extensively studied. I did not know that so much of what I would come to understand about dogs would be based on a population so close to the names I initially chose because I loved to say the sounds!

    Great share, @Laurent Boscherini. I can prove Zanzi has episodic memory in many ways. She knows when I do specific actions - and there are a few of them - that I intend to go out by myself. She often goes to her crate just when I put my phone into my purse, for example. I never trained her in any way, it is just a part of the process of me leaving and she noticed this action occurs and made the association herself. It also helps that I never take her for a walk with my phone or purse - her walks are for her.

    I can also prove the length of her memory when I 'cook' her food before we walk - she pulls me back home after she completes the point of the walk. She knows dinner is waiting. If dinner is not waiting, she will want to linger on the walk.

    Dogs are wonderful muses, even if they belong to your neighbour. Enjoyed the post Ray. While reading it, a quote by C.S. Lewis came to mind. In it, he defines. the 'Satisfied Imagination' as 'Looking onng enough nd looking freshly at what is familiar'. Sometimes we don't have to wander like Otis, but look around us with new eyes.

    "Otis was just living in the now on a quest to learn what can come." Highly engaging buzz, @Ray Stasieczko! I am a fan of all the lessons that dogs can teach. And I regard beBee as my neighborhood and I LOVE strolling around, alert to what is actually present, and I can attest that there is joy and excitement to be found in interacting with people around the globe, sharing the stuff that fuels their own interest.

    " If leaders and teams took time to simply search for the unknown, they would more often than not be rewarded by finding what others missed by being static in their search." I boldly believe it is simply as easy as a switch to bringing in outside perspectives early and often.

    They all have their own preferences. My first dog had 1 stuffed animal her whole life, took it everywhere. My current dog ended up with the exact same look as Rudy and a little stuffing sticking out of her mouth when I gave her a stuffed animal. Keep the pictures coming!

    #3 Hi Deb - He's just bored. He didn't swallow anything.
    He has a box of chewy toys and all sorts of stuff. Oddly, this is our first dog who doesn't seem to care about chasing balls. Or maybe he's smarter. This was taken several months ago, he's calmed down a lot.

    Do watch him, that stuffing stuff is pretty toxic and might expand internally. I bet there is a pretzel or some nugget of food lodged in there....or is Rudy prone to separation anxiety?

    #1 Thanks Susan. Yeah, he's big and oafy. Kind of like Goofy. He's a fox hound. Always sniffing for something. . .
