Have Dog Training Questions? Ask a Dog Trainer.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Hi, JACustomer. Do you happen to have video of what you're seeing?
See what options exist and we can chat further tomorrow. It will greatly help to see what you're seeing. Just as it is with horse behavior, it's much easier to tell what is happening when you can view the body language of an animal.
It sounds to me like this is likely playful behavior based on the way you've described it. Hopefully the camp will be willing to allow video since it's being shared directly with a professional. If not, we'll make do :)
Very possible. I think it's likely he's taking the submissive role and trying to find dogs by treating them like he treats the cats at home. Singling them out and then giving them playful signals to see if they will give chase.
I'm sure we can get to the bottom of it!
