Key #5 – Use Commands As Verbal Cues
The human environment tends to overload dogs’ senses, but we still expect them to pretend they’re not noticing anything. Learning and being a part of group activity are two things that dogs love. That means that how you grow in being able to translate for and teach them is related directly to how much zest they have for both learning and living.
Recognize that it is if you’re teaching each word or set of instructions to someone from another country who is learning your language. Rather than leaving commands such as ‘Wait,’ ‘Good,’ ‘Down,’ or ‘Sit’ as single-note instructions, let them become verbal cues to your dog that guide his or her behavior in day-to-day life.
