Dog Behavior not just Training

I am sceptical about these sort of things and it concerns me that dog owners may use this sort of thing to excuse bad behaviours from their dogs.Just my humble opinion .

  • I have been talking with people all over the world. One of the subjects that came up was autism in dogs. Some people have seen behaviors in dogs that they can only describe as behaviors that are associated with autism. Autism in humans is still fairly new. We are still learning about autism. I do not believe there is much research regarding autism in dogs or other species. But we shouldn't rule it out.

    Has anyone ever witnessed symptom that might be autism in dogs that you have encountered? Please share you experiences and or thoughts on this subject.

    Thanks
