Dog Listening 411

You have a dog, a dog that you love. You have done all the right things and provided for the dog to the best of your ability, so why? Why does your dog display all sorts of behaviours you just don’t understand.

Your dog is fine most of the time, it’s just when you have to go to work…
Or you have to leave the dog in the car…
Or put the dog outside…
Digging, chewing, destroying, howling, barking, fence running, jumping, mouthing, biting, growling, aggression…

There is an endless list of scenarios and symptoms. Symptoms that you know all too well.

Regardless of the age, the size, the breed, the personality of your dog or the particular symptoms your dog is exhibiting I can happily assure you that there is an answer. It’s been there all the time. It is the language that dogs speak to each other. It’s the language that the wolf has used successfully for thousands of years.

The vast majority of dog owners enter their relationship with their dog under the false belief that the dog is an incapable, dependent, furry child. The dog is actually an intelligent functioning member of a pack. A pack that needs to have a leader. If there is no leader present, the dog will take on that role itself. So starts the cycle of humans communicating at cross purposes to the dog.

Put simply: Dog Listening is made up of 4 key elements.
These key elements are based on the needs and instincts of the dog. There is no use of force or coercion, no gadgets, no drugs and no pressure is placed on the dog.

On the contrary…

This is a new language for  you to learn.

Your dog already knows it!  It will relate to the language immediately. This method of communicating with your dog is not a quick fix. When implemented consistently it will change both your dog’s life and yours for the better. You can have the relaxed, happy companion dog you wish for.
