Why does my dog not speak English?
I don’t know. Probably because he’s a dog. Owners face multiple issues, for example thinking their dog is food possessive or is having another issue worth giving up on him when actually, it’s a misunderstanding in communication. We ask our pets, “Max, why would you eat my breakfast? I mean, what did I do to deserve this?”. But all your dog hears is blah, blah, blah, blah. Feeling angry or sad are energies perceived in the dog world as weak and are therefore ignored. When the Alpha is challenged by another member of the pack, he will project a firm but calm, dominating energy which will instantly put the lower ranked dog back in its place. Energy is their language. You have to be that Alpha. When you do not step up to the plate, you are basically talking to the walls. If you have trouble making your dog sit and keep yelling”Sit! Sit! Sit!”and he just won’t sit, it is not because he is deaf. Yelling again and again means negative energy to him. Relax and take a deep breath. Advance towards your dog and he’ll sit on his own. With practice, you’ll be able to speak telepathically.
Most dogs at 1-2 years old still haven’t learned the basic commands. One thing I found that dogs will do anything for, is peanut butter. So I made peanut butter treats and tried them out. Freakin’ awesome response. He was ready to perform Gangnam Style. If you have a high-energy dog, do drain his energy before bringing in treats or you won’t make it out alive. On a side note, forget about trying to train an excited dog. Impossible. He won’t be able to concentrate on anything. Depending on size and breed, give a good amount of exercise before starting. Whenever you introduce your dog to something new, do not be worried as you would with a child as that makes him insecure. Project confidence and calmness. Try to make the commands distinct from each other and short so it isn’t complicated for both of you. It doesn’t mean a dog sits on command that he understands what “sit” means. He only associates putting his bum on the floor in exchange for a treat while you say “sit” at the same time.
So keep in mind that you are both alien to each other. But you both can speak energy. When you walk into a room and you meet new people, you can tell from their body language and energy what kind of mood is projected before words are being exchanged. Criminal psychologists dedicate their lives to studying serial killers using only their eyes. Equally, cops carefully watch the -slight; physical reactions of a possibly guilty suspect after only asking a single question. Energy is universal.
