Hello Ruffers! We know that one of the most frequent problems that most people who have dogs face, which is the lack of good communication between the dog and its owner.
Knowing how to communicate in an appropriate way with your dog makes them obey your orders, it also helps to establish a good relationship between you and your friend.
Something very important is that you know the most common habits, gestures and movements of your dog, that is the way in which you begin to understand what he wants or what he means when he makes certain movements, in this way, you will understand why he lifts his leg, or why he shakes his head.
In the same way, it's necessary that you learn to listen to their barks, howls, and grunts since it is not the same barking when he is playing that the one of when he feels threatened.
Not only it is about having confidence, also you have to demonstrate it. A dog will always obey constant and precise orders accompanied by clear gestures; since body language is very important. You always have to seek to be friendly but strict, showing that you know what you want and expect from your dog.
You may already know that reward and punishment is a fundamental method used to let your dog know when he did something right or wrong. Rewarding your dog helps to teach him to obey your orders. There are different ways to do it, such as: with praise and affection, take him for a walk, or even offer him a dog biscuit.
Definitely, learning to communicate with your dog is not easy, what we advise is to be patient and constant, in this way it will facilitate the process.
Remember that dogs realize our intentions, so be as honest as possible.
