Put Yourself In Their Shoes/Paws.

To understand how dogs communicate, you need first to put yourself in their shoes/paws.

The course does this through up-to-date studies and scientific findings, which inform us of exactly what dogs are saying to us through a variety of signals, facial expressions, body movements and vocal communications, and teaches us how we can alter our own behaviour to act and react to this input in ways that are meaningful to the dog.

Canine Communication Course dives straight into the core of the subject: communication, and how we can improve our ability to communicate cross-species. Differences in breed can also affect the way in which we communicate with dogs.

As with non-verbal human communication, you can tell a lot about what a dog wants or is feeling through their facial expressions, though these can be misinterpreted we will look in detail at what these expressions mean. We will also look at ‘calming signals’ which dogs display when stressed or anxious.

Again, just as in human relationships, body language is an important tool for non-verbal communication between man and dog and, just as in human relationships, these can often be misunderstood. Students will learn how to read and understand canine body language and how to respond with our own body language, for effective communication.

Who would benefit from this course?

The Canine Communication Course is of benefit to anyone who has regular contact with dogs. This could be as an owner, who would like to understand their pet better, and vice versa or in a dog/animal-related profession where this information could prove invaluable, such as for vets and dog trainers.
