Teach Your Dog to Relax Around Bees
Buzz off! How to train your bee-chasing, bee-eating, or bee-phobic dog to coexist calmly with stinging insects.
Just like a good skunking doesn’t stop most dogs from going after those black-and-white critters again the next time (darn it!), there are many dogs who seem goaded into more intense bee-chasing behavior after an unfortunate encounter of the stinging kind. Conversely, there are also dogs who become literally phobic about all small, flying creatures after a stinging incident. Then there are those who develop an obsessive-compulsive behavior known as fly-snapping.
