The Method

Much like the relationship of a parent and a child, the dog needs to know the owner will take care of them and not the other way round. A parents responsibilities are to provide for their child’s needs as is the owners responsibilities to provide for the dogs needs.

Through a lack of body language this message is not always clear to the dog. The communication taught is designed to show the dog in the clearest terms possible that you will look after them.

The communication to help confused/ stressed dogs was discovered by observing how wolves interact in the wild protect, nurture and look after their young.

This language can then be utilised with your dog to demonstrate that you will take care him/her. lt is a kind way to communicate with your dog that never resorting to gadgets, intimidation or force and uses dog psychology.

By showing your dog with your body language that you will take care of them, the message will be very clear of who provides for whom. This message will show the dog that whatever the situation is, you have it covered. As a result the dogs undesirable behaviour will disappear giving them the freedom to relax and play.

Due to their nature, every canine, including the dog asks questions about their needs. In many cases the dog assumes the owner to be trusted to make decisions for their needs and so looks to them for advice.

In other scenarios the dog believes they should be fulfilling their own needs. As a result they will not look to the owner but instead take charge in situations. For example on the walk, when strangers or other dogs approach, when the owners leave etc.

The stress that arises from having to fulfil their own needs is due to dogs not fully understanding our human world and so do not know how to do it. Dogs can perceive something as trivial as a skateboard passing, or the postman coming to the door, as a potential threat. If your dog has assumed the role of providing for their needs, perceiving a potential threat can cause him stress as he will believe it is his job to deal with it. As a result they will instinctively react, and exhibit all kinds of undesirable behaviour.

The dog needs someone who does understand the world, the owner to take the decision making from the dog, so they can look to someone who does understand the human world for cues on how to behave.

Even today these questions are answered with haultys, choke chains, frustration, anger, violence. Some dogs will succumb to force gadgets and intimidation but many will not.

The dogs that do not are then labeled as ‘un-trainable’. This is not the case.A consultation with a dog behaviourist will show you how to answer every question that a dog may ask in a calm, consistent, convincing manner.

Once you learn to communicate with a dog in a language that they understand the dog will respect your leadership and decision making. In an ideal world this communication is best learnt when they are puppies so you can build the foundations in from an early age to avoid the questions being asked.

If you have been answering the wrong questions for a while then it may take longer to get the message across,

‘however you can teach an old dog new tricks’ It is not important how many questions a dog asks; it is how we answer and then answers become lessons. In other scenarios the dog believes they should be fulfilling their own needs. As a result they will not look to the owner but instead take charge in situations. For example on the walk, when strangers or other dogs approach, when the owners leave etc.
