"The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man's." – Mark Twain, Letter to W D Howells, 4/2/1899

Body Language.

Humans rely a lot on language to get their point across.

Dogs do their best to understand as many of these words as possible but really, they speak a different language.

They speak though body language, and it’s not that hard to learn. They do us the honour of trying to learn our language, so maybe we should try to learn theirs.

They watch us all the time hoping that our body language will give them clues. Our energy and our demeanour are their way into our world. They want to be good pack members and they need us to tell them what their the rules are and what their boundaries and limitations are.

Learn their language, it’s fun, and you can talk without saying a word.
