Article: Self Soothing & Cry It Out Are Neurologically Damaging Here Is Why (No replies)
Contrary to popular belief systems, dogs are not trying to manipulate you with their crying, they have not sat down and drawn up plans to try and control you so their every basic need is met. Surely, with the new evidence brought into the light, they have EVERY right to have their basic needs met. Afterall you make the decision to be in charge of this when you get a dog. Think how frightening it must be to place that amount of trust on someone (for them and YOU)? How scary would it be, to express yourself and get ignored? How do you feel when your needs are not met? What do you do?
