Ever wonder why your dog does what they do? Like, why does your pup bark at people? 🐶 Well, let's dig deeper! Why did your furry friend choose to bark at that person? What's the story behind that bark - is it a warning, fear, or just playful excitement?
Understanding your dog's 'why' is a game-changer! Imagine you want to do obedience training with your dog, but they're nervous around other dogs. All they do is sniff around, right? Turns out, it's not just random sniffing. Your dog is actually saying, 'I'm stressed!' 🐾
If you keep pushing them into that situation, it won't help. Trust me, I've been there with my German Shepherd, Kaz. But when I tuned in to her 'why,' everything changed! 🌟
Your dog could be a champ if you get their 'why' and tailor your training to them. Not understanding it is why many teams stay in the backyard. If just thinking about stepping out with your dog gives you anxiety, this is for you! 😅
I'm not here to lecture; I've been through it. But I've also seen the magic of understanding your dog's 'why.' You become a team, working together. Your dog feels understood, tries harder, and behaves better! It's a win-win, and you'll both enjoy life more! 🎉
It's about 'listening' to your dog - they can't talk, but their body language speaks volumes. Learn to 'see' and 'hear' them. When do they sigh? How's their tail when happy, unsure, or scared? What gets them up in the morning? Dogs aren't that stupid, you know! 🐕
Every dog is unique. Teaching Delta was different from Kaz, and that's okay. You're part of the team, and you'll need to adapt to each dog. Just like people, no two dogs are the same. 🐶
I promise, this will make your life better with your dog! 🌈
So, why is knowing your dog's 'why' a game-changer? Dogs have their reasons, and sometimes they're like, 'Hooman, it's a dog thing!' 🐾 To be an unstoppable team, you've gotta know your partner. Your dog watches you and knows you better than you think.
Without knowing the 'why,' you might make things worse or confuse your dog. You're the coach, motivator, and educator here. It's your job to help them, not the other way around! 🤝
