A cautionary tale Print E-mail
Tuesday, 07 November 2017 12:24

Two friends set off for a walk with their dogs as they had often done before.  After a while Friend A handed the lead of her dog to Friend B so that she could go and get them both coffees.  Unfortunately Friend A's dog was bigger than Friend B was used to and pulled her over,  seriously hurting her.  She sued her friend and the judge agreed that Friend A was negligent, awarding Friend B damages and costs.  A cautionary tale indeed...

Fireworks and dogs Print E-mail

We're coming to that time of the year that spells misery for so many dogs: fireworks night. And in many ways this year will be especially problematic because some people will have displays on the Saturday, others on the Sunday so you may have to face two consecutive nights of bangs. (Of course in some parts, dog owners have to contend with displays all the year round: for New Year, weddings, birthdays etc). For mild cases of angst, the best policy is to close the curtains, turn up the volume on the television and avoid offering the dog comfort as this only convinces him that he is right to worry. More extreme reactions can be helped with sedatives from the vet and/or a DAP diffuser. Here at the CBC we don't wish to be killjoys but we can't help wishing that private firework displays were banned. There are so many impressive organised ones - many of which are relatively inexpensive or even free - why would someone waste a fortune to let off a few fireworks in their back garden?

Most of us have experienced the misery of a night of tossing and turning - usually after a stressful day. But Hungarian researchers have found that dogs can also suffer! In a study of 16 dogs, the team found that good or bad experiences prior to sleep affected its quality. In one group the dogs were played with by their owners and generally made a fuss of while the other group were left alone and ignored. The "lucky" group enjoyed a good hour of sleeping normally while the "unlucky" ones slept less and more restlessly. Admittedly this is a very small study but it could have interesting implications: if a dog regularly sleeps badly will it become more aggressive? In the same way that humans become more irritable with lack of sleep?
