Are You on Talking Terms with Your Dog?

dogs resources training Feb 07, 2022

Hi, I'm Heather Smith! I've been training dogs professionally since 2015. I help my clients by looking deep into the behaviors of dogs to find the root causes of certain behaviors. This is the job of a behaviorist (think of a behaviorist as a detective of the dog world).

Most often, I notice that people just don't know how to read a dog's body language, which can worsen and even cause undesired behaviors. When people learn to read and communicate with dogs effectively, beautiful things happen!

The dogs feel more loved and understood, and the people feel less frustrated because the communication barrier has been removed! Are you ready to understand your dog better?

I find myself recommending a book titled "On Talking Terms With Dogs: Calming Signals" by Turid Rugaas to most of my clients because it is a well-illustrated, easy-to-read little book that will help anyone to better appreciate the beauty of dog language better.

It is vital to understand dogs' signals - especially when it comes to seeing other dogs on walks, or children playing near reactive dogs. It is so important that everyone - especially children - understand dog language. So many fights and bites could be avoided if the communication gap between humans and dogs were not so distorted.

If you are one of my clients and I recommended this book to you, please use my Amazon link to buy it. Disclaimer: I am an Amazon Associate and receive commission in this role.
