Scratching is a normal 'calming' signals our dogs do to 'calm' themselves and to calm those around them. (so how smart is Brightelf to have figured this out???

As usual, I always recommend the DVD Calming Signals by Turid Rugaas to everyone. Because we 'stupid' humans are CONSTANTLY missing cues/signals and signs our dogs are tossing our way. The DVD is amazing how is shows these signals and things we can do to help.

Not saying our dogs are freaked out stressed, just NOT happy and loving what's going on.

So if we can make training a better thing for our dogs so they are confident and enjoying it. They not only will stop throwing the signals our way cause they think we are stressed, but they will stop worrying themselves..........
