Just answer Yes or No..!
► Does your dog sometimes fail to come to you when you call them?
► Does your dog pull on its lead or always walk a few paces in front of you?
► Does your dog bring toys or a ball to you seeking you to play together, or just to 'show' you?
► Does your dog rush barking to the front door when a visitor rings the bell?
► Does your dog regularly approach you, seeking a pat?
► Does your dog hop up on your lap, or next to you on the sofa, without being invited?
► Is your dog protective of you when you are out walking, or bark when in the car?
► Does your dog growl at, bark at, or be fearful of other dogs?
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you would definitely benefit from learning about Dog Listening , because it's likely your dog doesn't recognise you as their pack leader. For dogs, leadership is about issues such as controlling the arrival of strangers, guarding against external dangers, controlling the family's social interactions (who sleeps where, who strokes who & when, who eats when etc).
Dogs don't think like we do - they still think and interact with each other in a similar way to their wolf ancestors. Their language is different to ours, is mostly silent, and is based on body posture and behaviour - it is universal across breeds and countries. You can learn how this language works and how to respond in order to be an accepted leader to a canine.
Importantly, if you have problems with your dog associated with controlling your dog's behaviour including barking, aggression or other protective behaviours, or your dog is nervous, anxious and fearful, you would most definitely benefit from a Dog Listener Home Consultation. These issues can be resolved.
