Although our canine friends love us unconditionally, there is a number of things you probably do that are driving your dog nuts. In order to keep Fido as your best friend, you need to know what these nasty and annoying habits are and try to get rid of them as quickly as possible.
1. Yelling At Him
We simply love talking to and about other people, sometimes even behind their backs, but we need to understand that our pets respond better to body language and physical manifest of emotions, than to verbal communication.
Dogs are able to figure out the meaning of some key words we use daily (words like sit, stay, walk, treat, toy, off…), but they are not capable of completely understanding human language and all the messages it conveys. What they are true experts at, hoever, is being able to read our body language and decipher exactly what you’re thinking and feeling just by reading your body.
So next time you want to yell come! at your dog, try leaning forward and summoning him with your hand instead. It will work like a charm.
