    Comments : We had a fabulous time at your quiet, very
    beautiful, amazing place. It was so nice to go somewhere that we didn't
    run into anyone, we were able to rest and let our dogs run as much as they
    wanted to. Flash was especially fond of having George visit and play.
    We miss him and the mountains! We are planning to visit again
    as soon as possible!

    David--
    The remarks you made about dog behavior as you were leaving were
    interesting to me and made very good sense, too. I regret I was unable to
    make notes. May I phone sometime today or tomorrow to speak with you?

    1. A dog who is raised without human contact will as an adult
    behave diffenntly than a dog who has been raised as part of a human family
    and habituated to humans as family members. Critical age for habituation?
    Probable behavior range for dogs (like George) not habituated until a year
    or so old?

    2. George is very "needy." Approaches strangers for petting in a
    persistent and really (to me) annoying manner. He will get up on
    astranger's lap if there is any opportunity for him. Roots of this
    extremely "needy" behavior?

    David--I'm sorry to presume on your time in this way. My old GF and I had
    a dog shrink in VT (a funny story about her Aussie sheepdog bitch) who was
    pretty good, but she's far away and you've recently observed George. Any
    help along these lines will help me control George's contacts with guests
    in a safer manner.

    Also, are there well-written technical, scientifically accurate books on
    the subject you can steer me to?

    Best wishes,
    Martin

    Martin,
    I would be happy to talk to you further on the subject. I am available
    around 11-11:30am today, you can try me at 917-575-4583 and I will try you
    as well.
    An excellent book that I recommend you get is called Culture Clash by Jean
    Donaldson. They have it at Amazon. This will open your mind to a whole new
    way of understanding dogs and dog training.
    We will send pictures of our amazing trip to 4 Peaks soon. In the meantime,
    look at the attached image. That is George's newest friend, our border
    collie, Flash! You can see this ad in the July issue of Country Life or
    Better Homes and Garden magazine if you happen to have one lying around. ;)
    -David

    David--
    Thanks for your help on the phone and the book reccommendation.
    I'll read with interest. Sounds like cutting edge thinking.
    I think now I'm better prepared to deal with George's interactions
    with guests. I'll work on the "Here" command right away. He's
    good with HOUSE, CAR, COOKIE etcetc so I know he'll get it.
    Flash looks very cute. How did he get picked for the ad?
    Best wishes,
    Martin

    Dear David and Lauren,
    Greetings!
    Sorry I haven't gotten to do your webpage yet.
    Love the photos. Will get this soon.
    Lauren--I think you said you like Numi herbal teas? I ordered
    a big bunch of assorted Numi from Amazon and not keen on
    herbals myself. Oversupplied. Let me know and I'll make you a
    gift of them.
    Best wishes,
    Martin
