Friday Food For Thought, from Suzanne Clothier

Friday Food For Thought, from Suzanne Clothier October 21, 2011

“The leading cause of death in dogs in Western countries is behavior – unacceptable, uncontrollable, inappropriate behavior. Not disease. Not being hit by a car. Not neglect or abuse (though an argument could be made that a failure to train a dog so that he can act appropriately is precisely a form of neglect and abuse). If we fail to develop a high quality of connection with our dogs, we may fail them in the most terrible of ways, and they may pay for our failure with their lives.”

– Suzanne Clothier, dog trainer and author
of “Bones Would Rain From The Sky”
