The Myth Of “Normal” Dogs

Wishing you had a normal dog?  One that doesn’t get stressed from being left alone?  Or that doesn’t roll in stinky stuff?  Or one that doesn’t bark?  If your dog does those things or other things we humans find problematic, you already have a “normal” dog. What we really want are abnormal dogs.  Casey Lomonico does a great job looking at what a normal dog is really like. She also looks at normal dog owner behavior—a sad commentary, to be sure.  Casey is a dog trainer & behaviorist and a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner.
