A BOOK YOU MUST READ!
6 October 2015
Superb book and a must for dog owners !!
It gives you REAL insight as to how they perceive us and why they are not at fault most of the time- it's us !!! For not giving clear signals!
A dog does not understand us when we talk in sentence to it- it just picks up on tone and the 100's of movements you make ( without even being aware )
Try standing and looking in a mirror at yourself. Keep as still as you can but smile, then frown. Now do it again but this time observe the tiny changes you see in the muscles on your face. Try doing this with some one else and ask each other to do different things but NO TALKING !!
This is only a small example of what your dog sees/ only he's aware of every muscle in your body- all at the same time- no sound needed and he can work out from these changes what you are doing/ going to do.
How many people follow a reasonably same routine before going out each time?
You might have something to eat and drink, put your dishes in the sink,go to the bathroom, clean your teeth, brush your hair etc. Then come down stairs and get your coat and bag then check your bag to make sure you have everything before picking up your keys.
By the time you have got to the point of brushing your teeth, your dog has already recorgnised that you are going and leaving him and at this point if he suffers from stress this is when it starts!!
The book gives you SO MANY insights!!
