To understand how dogs communicate, you need first to put yourself in their shoes/paws.
The course does this through up-to-date studies and scientific findings, which inform us of exactly what dogs are saying to us through a variety of signals, facial expressions, body movements and vocal communications, and teaches us how we can alter our own behaviour to act and react to this input in ways that are meaningful to the dog.
Canine Communication Diploma Course dives straight into the core of the subject: communication, and how we can improve our ability to communicate cross-species. Differences in breed can also affect the way in which we communicate with dogs.
As with non-verbal human communication, you can tell a lot about what a dog wants or is feeling through their facial expressions, though these can be misinterpreted we will look in detail at what these expressions mean. We will also look at calming signals’ which dogs display when stressedor anxious.
Again, just as in human relationships, body language is an important tool for non-verbal communication between man and dog and, just as in human relationships, these can often be misunderstood. Students will learn how to read and understand canine body language and how to respond with our own body language, for effective communication.
Through study and observation, you should now have a much-improved understanding of dogs. Students will be shown how to show specific signs to approach and communicate with individual dogs in a meaningful way. Dogs have certain needs you will learn how to recognise if a dog is suffering with a problem and how to recognise if he/she is trying to tell you about it.
