Use ‘Dog Talk’ to get your message across

Once you understand the language of dogs and that means your being “with” the belly him , groaning tail and the languages other body, you will know how to talk to a dog of dogs with effective communication. Remember that your puppy is not a mind reader and what is “normal” behavior for humans can be a completely foreign and offensive language to dogs. Instead, you can use ” dog talk ” to get your message across.

Humans are primates.

We touch and hug, gesture with our hands, and when we get upset, our tone of voice often becomes louder and louder. All of these things can be confusing or even threatening to the puppy in particular, but also to adult dogs .

5 Common Puppy Communication Mistakes

Leaning on your dog: We are taller than pups, and it is natural to sit down to talk or seduce them. But “threatening” on top of a dog scares him, because in dog talk it means “I’m the boss, I’m in control.”

This can be shocking or even scary for pups who already accept your status as a boss. They can use calming gestures such as submissive moisture to indicate they are not threatening. Strange dogs that do not recognize you can become aggressive or defensive when you lean over them. They just fight what they think of as a challenge.

Instead of leaning over the top of the puppy, give him space so he can get close to you. Turn to the side and bend or kneel on the floor so your height and posture do not seem challenging.

Seeing with rigid eye contact: Sure, she is a little doll-baby doll, but direct eye contact can also be intimidating.

Use the calming signals of living beings to tell him that it means no harm. Turn your head away, avert your eyes and move slowly to give the pup time to build up the courage to stay on the ground or even get closer.

Pats on the head: Imagine you are a puppy and a hand half the size of your whole body sits down on top of your head – YIKES! Won’t you dodge and jump and even dress to cover?

Instead, think about how puppies and dogs meet each other- the smell of communication with sniffs first, contact later. So offer your hand, the palm, for the baby dog ​​to sniff back your fingers without the risk of being snatched. Then offer a scratch on the front of the chest or on the side of his neck. Avoid chopping the tops of dogs and dogs until you know the animal very well and they have shown a good understanding of “human conversation”.

Hugging: For puppies and dogs, hugs are not a sign of love. Used animals use to catch and fight during game or fights, during mating behavior or simply to show dominance.

Give up hugging and teach your kids alternate ways to show love for dogs. Alternatively, the puppy can tea in retaliation for what she perceives to be an attack.

Kissing: Yes, the young puppy seems to be licking – I do everything, kind of like a kissing maniac. We often think of kissing as exclusively an expression of love and affection. But even in humans, a kiss can mean more respect than worship.

Dogs and puppies show their love in other ways. Licking is used to show respect, reverence, and a statement that, “I’m not a threat.” Dependent dogs make a dog more dominant either the face of the person or the side of the mouth as a gesture of consolation .

If you or your child try to mimic this signal to look and “kiss” the dog in or near the mouth or eyes, in dog language this tells him that you are submissive to him. This can get you both into trouble. A large proportion of dog animals guide children because the child hugged or tried to kiss the dog.

How to talk to your dog

Now that you understand what your body language means, use it to talk dog to dog with your dog. When you want your juvenile delinquent pup to clarify and think, or you want to encourage the shy fool to be more confident, just communicate with him like a dog.

And fast, you do not have to mutis your tail!

Honest signals

  • Use a calm, low tone of voice and short words. Loud hoarse voices may sound fiery and send the wrong signals that you are not on top.
  • Use the same words for the same thing every time so your pup learns your language by repetition. He will not know that “wait” and ” stay here” and “I will turn right” or “do not move” mean the same thing to you. Choose one. Puppies thrive on routine. A click training technique works especially well to communicate what these words mean.
  • Stay long. The loaded dog should not make a product out of it, they just keep themselves as the boss. And everyone trusts them so they do not have to try it.
  • Dogs do not use their hands to control the movements of others — they use body blocks, augment and lean, and control space. Think about how a shepherd to shepherd brings cattle and sheep makes the move without ever touching. You can do the same, using your body to control dog movements. If he jumps on you, simply place your hands close to your body and lean in his direction before he jumps. You occupy and control the first space and he will retreat.

Calming signals

  • For shy pups , think of ways to ease dogs anger in the same way. A louder, slower, calmer voice may indicate to the child that you are not a threat.
  • Do not lean on it and lean on top of it. Bend or kneel. Let her approach the students instead of following her. If you really want to pique the puppy’s curiosity and show that you are not a threat, stay still on the ground.
  • If you have to approach, trap at an oblique angle instead of walking straight towards the cone.
  • Praise your lips or left while looking away.
  • Try a dog laugh. Sneeze and watch the baby sneeze back. Or imitate the unhyiced breathhy “ha-ha-ha-ha” laughing voice that dogs use exclusively in the game to say you mean no harm.
