Kim Kavin joins Karen and Renee today to discuss how she met her rescued dog, “Blue” and what she learned about how dogs are killed every day in shelters that use gas chambers. She explains why so many rescue groups are now running vans down south to bring dogs up north to save them from this horrible death!
Renee and Karen talk about why prospective dog owners should not purchase 2 puppies out of the same litter. They discuss what problems can arise if siblings are raised together and what serious mistakes humans make when they have siblings living under the same roof. Today’s show is a ***** program!
Renee discusses why some dogs choose to show aggression. She mentions several human behaviors that may trigger biting, including using painful punishment tactics, being confrontational, etc. She discusses what body-language signals to watch for that may predict a bite is coming. Renee also talks about how to respond appropriately when a dog is growling, snapping or snarling.
Karen opens the show by discussing what traits you want to avoid when selecting a dog to adopt. Renee then shares advice on how to set your newly-adopted dog up for success with you and your family.
