Conversations With Dogs Without Worry
Deciphering canine body language is an important part of understanding our dog. Being able to identify even small signals helps us to better know what he is communicating.
Humans rely on the spoken word, but we do also respond to body language. Meantime, whilst our dogs can learn the meaning of some key words or phrases, their mastery of communicating via body language, gestures and signals is second to none in the animal kingdom. Communication between guardian and dog is two way. Our dogs have been proven to read us pretty well, however we can also learn how to identify, interpret and respond to the signals that they are giving.
How do our postural habits affect our dogs postural habits?
How does our training and training equipment affect our dogs physiology?
What role does pain play in communication?
This programme will help you understand your dog better and to begin questioning what you are seeing.
Blended Support Programmes
6-Week Online Programme For You And Your Dog
This six-week programme is designed to take you beyond basic body language, signs and signals, in a combination of written material and live sessions. We will help you increase your skills, to be able to identify the smallest movements that create the most obvious and overt movement and behaviour patterns.
When a dog's body is relaxed, they will be more relaxed emotionally.
In humans, when we feel stiff, sore, discomfort or pain it affects our mood and emotions. It is the same for our dogs.
We need to be aware of the differences between objective and subjective observation, as well as the nuances of each. In cases where the dog is displaying an unwanted behaviour there is often ‘negative labelling’ which can lead to subjective observations of the dog. Even our own bias can influence or cloud our objectivity when observing behaviours.
During the live weekly discussions, we will be observing videos, helping you to discover so much more about your dog and what he is communicating.
If you prefer to study by a self-paced course we also offer a CPD Conversations with Dogs course.
