In this section, you will find many pages relating to dog behaviour originally written during 2002-6 by Canine Consultant Sally Hopkins and many guest writers. The section on Sprinkles(TM) has been removed from this section and made available directly from the toolbar above.
In about 2011/12, Sally came to recognise that what she has called stress in this website is a very big all encompassing word. With further studies and observations during our special training, she, EIleen and Sean discussed and argued and came to the conclusion that the word "Stress" could be replaced (in many cases) with the word "Emotion". And so while repairing and updating this website, I will be looking at this word and its connotations in understanding dog behaviour. I note that COAPE had come to a similar conclusion but from an independent and different direction.
