Dog Walking and Behaviour Issue – Follow My Lead

Monthly Archives: December 2015


Welcome to my very first blog on Speak!  In writing this blog I hope to bring you information you can use that will make life with your dog a happy one.  As the saying goes “Happy dog, happy life”!

Speak in this scenario is a play on words.  Speaking is what we humans do.  We talk words to each other.  It is also the “word” we use to get our dogs to bark on command or, it is what they do to get attention.  It could be in a high pitched playful bark or a low sounding growl to let another animal or human know they are not feeling very comfortable at the moment.  A head’s up if you will to use a sports analogy.

The other kind of dog speak, and the most important, is all about energy and body language.  Watching dogs communicate is like watching a silent movie.  All us humans have to do is pay attention to what is going on in front of us and more importantly, what our own energy and body language is speaking to our dogs.  Could it possibly be that it is us humans who have created an unruly canine?

Thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope you will find it inspiring to change the way you look at dogs!
