    I stumbled across this page recently and I liked it a lot.

    http://www.wagntrain.com/BodyLanguage.htm

    It is about dog body language and provides examples for confidence, fear, dominance and play invitations.

    Anyone have any dog training experiences they'd like to share?

    What a fantastic site Stew!! Wish it had been around when I was studying to become a vet nurse - it would have saved me a lot of effort.

    I love the pictures. And all the information is presented in a very clear manner. Have you come across any other interesting sites about dog training or behaviour?

    How many dogs does it.............

    How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb?

    1. Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned
    out bulb?

    2. Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

    3. Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp!

    4. Rottweiler: Make me.

    5. Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.

    6. Labrador: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please!

    7. German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation.

    8. Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

    9. Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb?

    10. Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark.

    11. Chihuahua: Yo quiero Taco Bulb.

    12. Pointer: I see it, there it is, there it is, right there .

    13. Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares?

    14. Australian Cattle Dog: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle ...

    15. Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

    The Cat's Answer:

    "Dogs do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the real question is: How long will it be before I can expect some light, some
    dinner, and a massage?"

    ALL OF WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT WHILE DOGS HAVE MASTERS, CATS HAVE STAFF

    Not exactly 'body language' but I thought you might like to see it anyway.

    G'day Frank, yes, I've got greyhounds. One broody and 6 13 month old saplings. They are broken into a lead, and about to be prepared for track breaking in.
