Spike Says: Are You Listening To Your Dog?

18 12 2008

With two-thirds of Americans believing that their pet communicates to them, if you are not listening, you may be missing out on some important communication between you and your dog.  Many people can read their dogs’ inflection and body language to determine what their buddy is telling them.  Different barks, whines, dances, etc. mean different things.  Since we all cannot articulate (and type), these things are how we are trying to tell you what we want and need.  When you get a chance, have a conversation with your dog about your day.  Not surprisingly, he is probably a good listener, and he might have some advice to go along with it.

Very true. We definitely need to spend some time with our dogs, not only for them to listen to us, but for us to listen to them. What we need to make sure as humans is that we respect their persona and spend that time on THEIR own terms (not ours). Looking forward to your next post!
