What Is This???

This is a video of Tyson's nightly teeth cleaning session. I look at it and think that Tucker is showing submission to Tyson, but then again it could be a calming signal, however Tyson is sleeping soundly until Tucker starts licking, so Tyson is not openly acting stressed. As you can see Tyson gets a little annoyed and Tucker offers a calming signal in way of a head turn and then he goes back to work. What do you think is going on here?

Dog Training Philosophy

My photo

I train dogs using positive reinforcement training to modify unwanted behaviors.  I step outside the traditional training box and use therapeutic-grade essential oils to assist in my behavior modification regime when it comes to dogs plagued with fear and anxiety as well as aggression.  My philosophy is to heal the dog's mind, body and spirit, not just to rid the dog of unacceptable behaviors.  I specialize in shelter dog rehab, reactive rover, and fearful fidos.
