Have you ever asked yourself: How my dog feels about me?

Dogs rely on facial expressions and body language to communicate. It's important to understand canine communication and how your dog feels.

How your dog feels about you is directly related to how they will respond to you. Your body language, voice, energy, and emotion in every situation are the first line of feedback and are how your dog forms an overall opinion of you.
Let’s say you have a friend who is always talking in a baby voice, complimenting you, is easily bribed, lets you off the hook at the drop of a hat, is always overly eager to see you and please you, needs your approval... (you get the picture) then randomly gets angry at you or gives orders? Does it automatically change your perception of them into thinking they have suddenly become powerful and worthy of your respect? Not a hope!

Dogs are commonly labeled as “untrainable” or “dumb” just because they have no motivation to follow what is in their mind, an unstable or confused pack leader.
Two big things you can do to impress your dog when you ask them for something is:
1. Make sure you ask without becoming emotional and
2. Commit to the task yourself – don’t give up or let them off the hook.
It is so important to follow through!  So many owners will say (for eg) “come” and when the dog doesn’t come, they say “oh, that’s because (insert excuse here) – he usually does”.

They are unaware that by allowing the dog to have selective listening, the dog is actually being taught that it’s ok to ignore the come command and that requests are optional. Be choosey what you ask for, you are better off not asking at all if you know you aren’t able or ready to follow through or you don’t know how. Educate and empower yourself!

The funny thing is, the stricter you are with compliance, the more freedom your dogs will ultimately have because you will trust each other more!
