DogSpeak: Improving communication between you and your canine
You know that clear communication is key to developing strong relationships. Envision meeting an individual that you will need to live with for 15 years. You each speak a different language. So, what do you do? You learn each other's language. The individual I am talking about is your dog.Canines and primates express themselves very differently. We even use different body parts to "talk." But once you know how your dog expresses himself, communicating becomes much less complicated — and frustrating. The key is knowing what to look for in your pup, and using that same body language to "speak" to him.
