Dogs are excellent interpreters of canine body language and signals. But how good are we at reading dogs? Sure, you know that ears back and tail down means a dog is afraid, and that a show of teeth is your cue to move away slooowly. But there's so much more to canine body language and communication. Here are just a few of the topics that are covered in Talk to the Paw:
You will hear about all of these topics, and you will also gain a much better understanding of how human body language and vocalizations can have a huge impact. You'll see how even your smallest gesture can affect the way dogs react, both in training and in everyday interactions. Best of all, you'll learn how to use that knowledge to gain cooperation and trust. The lecture is packed with eye-opening information, including the latest research studies as well as an extensive collection of fascinating photos and video footage. By viewing real-time video and then slow-motion playback, you'll improve your observational skills and discover subtle, lightning-quick signals that otherwise might have been missed—even if you're a professional.
