Get Connected with Your Dog

by Brenda Aloff


Getting connected with your dog is the key to building a relationship in which learning can flourish and the needs of both the dog and the owner are met. Relationships are built on communication, so having a common language that both sides can understand is of paramount importance. Luckily, dogs are masters of body language and you can use this to help build effective communications with your dog.

Once you know how to communicate with your dog, that knowledge – combined with positive training techniques – can make you a much more effective trainer. And your dog will become a willing partner, one who trusts you and is willing to work with you to learn behaviors. Over time, your dog will flip the “Magic Switch” and begin to use the thinking part of his brain (the Frontbrain) more often than just the reactive part of his brain (the Hindbrain). And you will have achieved a huge step forward in your ability to train and interact with your canine companions!

Learn how to
• Use subtle body language your dog can understand to direct or redirect your dog’s movements.
• Be consistent and coherent in your interactions with your dogs.
• Mark and reinforce behaviors you want to encourage.
• Use exercises shown in the accompanying DVD to build you skill and confidence as a trainer.
