    Hi guys! I adopted a 9 year old black lab mix from a shelter almost 4 months ago, and when I met with him before I got him, he seemed like a great match.

  20. Do Dogs' dislike of hugs explain some biting incidents?

    Dog Training Forum
    Bottom line: does hugging make our pooches uncomfortable? I recently read several articles, including this one, pointing out that while humans (and other closely related primates) greet and express affection with hugs, canines don't share that cue. In fact (oh, please, without getting into...
