The first and most important step to building a strong, healthy relationship with our dogs is to truly understand how they think, feel and learn.
Thanks to the ongoing advances in the scientific community, our understanding of our canine companions is constantly evolving, providing us the opportunity to look deep inside the dog’s mind and answer the questions that prove how deeply connected dogs are to humans.
We now know far more not just about how dogs experience the world through their senses, but also about how they communicate with each other (and us) through body language. We're learning more and more about dogs' emotional experiences and the ways in which people have been misinterpreting some pretty key signs from them over the past few decades.
Understanding your dog’s experience and gaining insight into how his mind works can truly make you a better teacher, caregiver, and companion to him. Seeing the world from your dog’s perspective will help promote communication and enhance the relationship between you.
