Med focus på djurens välmående

En blogg och faktasida om framför allt hundar, men också annat som jag finner intressant som angår djurens välmående i vardagen och all slags träning.

Jag tar avstånd från allt som syftar till att skada, skrämma och på annat sätt kränka djur till att lyda.

Leta alltid efter de snälla och vänliga sätten att träna, fostra och leka med ditt djur, oavsett vilken art eller den ras du har. Empati och kärlek till sin djur, måste få vara mottot när man lever tillsammans med dem. Alla andra sätt är fruktansvärt orättvist mot den, för den kommer aldrig att förstå varför du inte tycker om den!

Jag har delat mitt liv med hundar sedan barnsben och har i över 22 år haft förmånen att leva med den delvis domesticerade hundrasen, Basenji. Min nuvarande guldklimp är idag över 14 år. Men vet du vad? De snälla och vänliga sätten gäller även med dem! Detsamma gäller alla ur- och tamdjur. Det är människans ansvar att visa empati och förståelse för de djur vi ansvarar för och delar våra liv med.

Var snälla mot varandra!

Med en varm önskan om att fler tar denna manifestation till sitt hjärta. Tack Emily Larlham som har initierat denna och satt ord på vårt gemensamma mål att: Allt vi gör ska vara med djurens bästa för våra ögon, både i vardag och all slags träning.

The story behind Gulahund Yellowdog

Gulahund Yellowdog Cares About Sensitive Dogs in Society

The Story Behind

With a yellow ribbon or bandana on the dogs’ leash or on the dog, you can now signal from a distance, that your dog need more space or time to get out of your way. It’s cheap and easy for anyone to use, because you can even make your own if you want too. Spread the knowledge in your own community.

My name is Eva Oliversson and is the originator and founder of the Swedish International Gulahund™ Yellowdog program, which was launched in June 27 2012. I’m also a certified International Dog trainer in Dog behavior and problem solving – also called a Dog behaviorist.

In Spring 2012, a friend of mine and a Dog behaviorist in Norway, Mimmi Engh, wrote that she had read about the use of a yellow ribbon on dogs, and we found out that some Dog clubs in Australia had been using it at their dog courses for some years, with the meaning to make their courses easier for sensitive dogs.

I just loved this idea and couldn’t let it out of my mind. For so many years had I been longing to find a smart solution for sensitive dogs around/among people and animals in the society.  I kept imagining the potential. Because, if you can create the feeling of safe distance for a sensitive dog, that dog will get the ability to learn how to cope in different surroundings much faster. If it’s able to succeed with your help giving extra space and feels good and secure at least 8 times of 10, the training will progress. But if for example, the reason is about sickness, injures or an old dog, it may need this help for a lifetime and one has to respect that too. A bitch may also be in season. Note that, all dogs should socialize with other dogs sometimes to create a sense of safety and familiarity, but it’s the dog owners’ responsibility to choose which playmates are best for their dogs.

I invested in a couple of yellow bandanas and invited a group of dog people to run the programs campaign together with me, and a few weeks later it was launched on the internet, with the goal to reach all dogs ”World Wide”. One of the Dog clubs in Australia who uses yellow ribbons in their courses was also contacted and told about the program, and their immediate response was that they would spread the program in their own town, Tamworth, too.

The purpose of the program, by using a yellow ribbon or bandana on the leash or on the dog

  • Give dog owners the possibility to take extra care of their dogs that are sensitive in any way.
  • Prevent unnecessary misunderstandings.
  • Give both dogs and their owners more space or time to move away from people and animals.
  • Create the possibility to slowly train a dog and by that make better training progress.
  • Make life easier for those dogs that for a shorter or a longer period in their lives, need more space from people and animals. Some dogs maybe for the rest of their lives, depending on the issue.
  • There are LOTS of reasons why some dogs need some more space! They may be ill, hurt or may be just old. They may have a new family or bad life experiences and need a greater distance to slowly train to cope with their new surroundings. A bitch may be in season. Another dog may be having “everyday training”.

Today am I running this program with my wonderful team of International Ambassadors. We are all running the program voluntary and non profit. Make sure to visit their pages and give them your support.

Thank you all for supporting all sensitive dogs and special thanks to all of YOU, whom respects the yellow ribbon and yellow bandana. In these dogs’ eyes you will always be a Hero when you offer them this extra Space or give them time to move out of your way!

All the best!

Eva,
Originator and founder

Det är dags för 2000-talets kunskaper om djur

Det är dags att döda myterna!
Glöm allt du hört om Alfa, Beta, Alfarullningar, dominans, hierarkier, rangordningar osv. Det existerar inte varken hos tamdjur eller vilda.

Det är bara nonsens!

Dessa begrepp används inom forskningen, men saknar den betydelse som folk inbillar sig och helt felaktigt använder och missbrukar, sedan årtionden.
