Dog Behavior and Psychology

Dog Behavior and Psychology

 

After years and years and years of studying human psychology and a life time with dogs I realized that they two have far more in common then credit has been given. For decades dog training has been at a stand still. Interestingly enough, when Motley and I decided to go at this professionally we have come across several others who’s work and research supports the idea that besides communication dogs and people work in similar ways.  Even in communication we find that dogs are masters of interpreting us, through body language, smell and other non-verbal cues. We are finding that their ability to understand these cues far surpass our own. Crazy isn’t it. Well, long story short Motley and I are on a little adventure to use these new findings as well as tried and true psychology to better dog training. You will find that many of the techniques used in successful dog training are …. well … borrowed form psychologist and their methods of helping humans. They are very effective in both venues. Motley and I hope to expand on this and come up with a few new things along the way. We already have in our first months so, who knows what the future will bring. You all have my little boy Motley to thank so,  Hope you join us and enjoy the ride.
