As a dog owner, I have been thinking about how to train my pup to go hunting with me. However, he doesn't like fireworks so I fear he certainly won't like the sound of my gun. This may also be because he's a pug and not a black lab!
I have come to learn puppies need to experience various stimuli before the age of three months in order to securely withstand life's stressful events. In other words, what puppies haven't seen during this critical period, they will fear as adults. This corresponds with the period of imprinting. This demonstrates how an animal acquires his identity during a critical period of brain development. It is called period of imprinting because the animal forms his identity based on the available social contact present. Knowing this, a question comes to mind, how do I prevent this behavior from developing in the first place?
1. "Zombie Ants!" The article's title instantly grabs my attention and it generally raises questions. I'm a zombie fan altogether though!
2. "A Game of Emotion." I grew up playing hockey, so it was easy to relate too and accurate as to how it feels being on the ice.
3. "How to Spot a Liar." Her blog had a nice flow to it and I liked how she linked society to negativity and how we're guilty of doing it and continue to do it even after we connect the relationship.
