EBD089 Behavior is Communication

Have you ever wondered what your dog is trying to tell you?

Here’s a hint – since your dog can’t talk it out, they act it out. Dogs use body language like ear and eye position, body posture, facial expressions, and movement, to communicate with you. But, do you know how to listen to your dog?

Just because dogs can’t speak our language, doesn’t mean that we can’t learn theirs. Kathy is somewhat of a ‘dog whisperer,’ and uses her dog’s behavior as cues of communication. But she doesn’t want to keep all of this knowledge to herself!

In this episode of Enlightened By Dogs, Kathy reveals why it’s so important to understand your dog’s behavior if you want to build a trusting, harmonious, and deeply connected relationship with your dog.

If you want to understand your dog’s behavior better, this eye-opening episode will help you decipher what your dog is trying to tell you so that you can become a great partner for and with your dog.

In This Episode:

  • Why so-called “bad behavior” is really a cry for help
  • How to spot tell-tale signs that your dog is feeling uncomfortable, fearful, or stressed
  • Why you need to learn to listen to your dog’s whispers before they become screams
  • How to resolve your dog’s “behavioral issues” and deepen the bond between you both
