In this awesome episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast, Lauren and Tom are diving into a hugely popular topic – that’s right, we’re talking canine body language!
Have you ever wondered what your dog is trying to tell you? Whether they are sending you secret messages and signals as you go through life together?
All too often owners find themselves saying they had “no warning” or they “didn’t see it coming” when their dog reacts in a particular situation.
The reality is, our dogs are communicating with us every single moment of the day – they are speaking all the time, even shouting for us to understand them – and yet, canine body language, their cues and their attempts to communicate with us are often misread and misunderstood!
In this super episode, Tom and Lauren are diving into their topmost tips, tricks, advice and thoughts on canine body language – and how we as owners and pet parents can level up our understanding of our dogs so that we can truly listen when they speak to us!
Here’s a sneak peek at what you’ll find in this episode:
– Why it’s important to be your dog’s best advocate by not forcing them into situations that make them uncomfortable, reactive or worried (from walks to greeting strangers, dog-dog interactions, socialisation and more)!
– Why your dog doesn’t always know best when it comes to putting themselves into situations when they are unsure or don’t have the skills to cope with – even if they appear to want to investigate!
– Why you’ll never actually know exactly what emotions your dog is feeling and why calmness (and confidence) are the KEYS to success for any dog!
– Why socialisation is not what you think it is and how careful exposure and guarding your dog’s confidence and optimism is far better than overexposure to the wrong things!
