Coping with being bitten is quite an undertaking as it can really change your perspective. It really can be something difficult to comprehend as it feels so personal. Being bitten can and does change your relationship with your dog as it can leave you feeling violated. It can make you question your confidence and safety with your dog and many times your ability as a trainer. In this episode we try and make a little sense of why these things happen and give suggestions on how to cope. However, as we are not psychologists, we can only make recommendations when thoughts are too serious. In the event you do find yourself struggling with your thoughts, we always recommend the council of a trained professional. One to examine the dogs behaviour and perhaps someone to help with your thoughts. Dogs bite for a lot of reasons, therefore we suggest being aware of the events leading up to being bitten. Although this is a helpful suggestion, it may not always be practical. Further details If your looking for contact details, great trainers and supporters of The Canine Paradigm, look no further.
