Key Takeaways:

  • ‘Bad behavior’ is often a cry for help: Dogs communicate their feelings through actions, and when they feel unheard or misunderstood, their behavior may escalate to get your attention.
  • Pay attention to the signs: Recognizing your dog’s subtle cues or “whispers” is crucial for understanding their emotions and building trust.
  • Listen to your dog’s whispers: Trust your dog when they show signs of unease or discomfort, and consciously make choices to create positive experiences that foster confidence and trust.

Memorable Quotes:

“When trust runs deep, you and your dog can handle any experience together.”
