The Art of Reading the Dog
Dogs communicate with each other through a series of subtle and secret signs. Our observations and communication during our relationships with dogs can sometimes seem very inadequate in the face of this sophisticated non-verbal communication system.
Training or behavior problems are often caused by the dog's reaction to cues we send unwittingly. Unfortunately, again, dogs are often blamed rather than the trainer.
The person who trains the dog should be skilled and experienced in the correct evaluation of non-verbal behavior and signs in our relationship with the dog. The fact that we rely heavily on verbal communication during education is perhaps one of our biggest mistakes. As a rule, any concept that cannot be clearly explained non-verbally should not be expected to be understood by the dog.
Knowledge gained through careful consideration is invaluable. Without this information, you cannot make sound decisions on behalf of the dog.
Every dog has good days and bad days just like us. If you have the right knowledge of the dog's physical and mental abilities and limits, it will be easier to avoid training problems. Otherwise, it is often equated with injustice or even cruelty that the dog sees from its owner.
