How to have a happy and balanced dog
Today’s urban dog must become integrated into our society.
It is necessary as canine caregivers to become knowledgeable in the abc’s of canine education and canine communication.
We must be able to correctly interpret and act upon the dog’s signals to allow him the greatest success.
How I can help
We can learn to educate our dog so that he is properly integrated into our community.
I can teach you how to create a relationship between man and dog based on mutual confidence and respect. Yes it is possible!
This can be accomplished with thoughtful reinforcement, taking into account the whole situational context including the dog’s responses, yet not relying on physical restraint. It requires knowing how to adapt ourselves to whatever is occurring in the moment according to what the dog is showing us.
How we can establish a relationship of complicity with our dog :
- Avoid training techniques that are painful in any way to the dog
- Through our body language
- Mindful of our words and emotions
- Be aware of inconsistencies in our expectations
With this understanding, we can easily live in harmony with our dog on a daily basis.
Communication is always possible !
Our dogs communicate with us all the time! We just have to learn how to interpret what they are saying and act accordingly.
If our words say one thing and our body says another we are sending mixed signals to our dog.
