Communicating With Your Dog

Yesterday, Alys and I walked behind a woman with her two small dogs on a leash. What stood out to me, was that she keppt talking at them in a constant stream of words, and in a tone of voice that might make a sensitive dog like Alys duck and cower ("I said no barking stop that this way will you listen now...").

Her dogs however, didn't care one bit, dashing left and right, sniffing here and there and enjoying dog life on the first proper day of spring. They had probably learned that the strange noises coming from their human had no real significance for them


Then there is this dog training course I read about in the paper a few weeks ago. It was a one day course teaching your dog not to pick up things from the street, no matter how yummy. The description put a lot of focus on their use of non-verbal training, exclusively using body language to train your dog.


I'm a big fan of using body language with your dog...Collapse )
