Behavior observation by...an 11 yr. old??

This forum is all about training and behavior. Everything from potty training to working titles!

My daughter is now 11, and has been, of course, raised around dogs for most her life now.
Yesterday I was trimming Jenny - we're going in stages, lol - and Ashley was holding her leash - at one point Ashley said "Uh oh!" and I said "What?" She said "Well she stopped panting and I thought she was getting upset and going to bite!"
I thought that was pretty observant of her, considering she's only 11 years old. Way to watch the body signals/language, Ashley!
Although Jenny didn't bite :)

I was proud that even at age 11 she could recognize the change in body language and be prepared for a possible problem :)

Good Job teaching her, Mom. :clap: Odds are she'll never get bitten in the face for approaching a dog she doesnt know.
