Using Words More Than Body Language

While our pups can understand a few basic words (sit, walk, toy), they don’t really get what we mean when we’re explaining how our day went. However, they are real experts at reading our body language, which is what we should be focusing on! For instance, telling a dog to “stay” while leaning forward toward the dog and holding out a hand like a traffic cop is, in body language, actually inviting the dog to come toward you. But when the dog does, she gets reprimanded for breaking her stay command. It’s all so confusing!
