Become a Dog Whisperer

Plenty of people call themselves a dog whisperer, especially since the popular TV dog show aired.

Believe me, anyone can become a "whisper" by simply using Operant Conditioning, positive reinforcement for the behavior you’re a seeking of the dog in exchange for a treat or a praise.

There have been many times I have been faced with an aggressive dog – which most of the times is just fearful and nervous and doesn’t know how to best express that. I have been able to approach the cautious canines and befriend them where others have not been able to by simply understanding a little about dog and human body language.

Educate your self in understanding a little about dog behavior, and reading the outward signs of inward emotional states in canines, put into to practice, and practice and practice, and you to can seem like a dog whisperer.

It ultimately comes down to education, experience, empathy and leadership.

Empathy is necessary. A dog whisperer is not heavy-handed, abusive, or even authoritarian. A dog whisperer is understanding of why the dog is behaving as he is, and seeks to balance the dog's needs with the owner's needs in a complementary fashion.

Leadership is key, but not Napoleon style but rather lead by example just as you would a child. So get out there and learn how to be a dog whisperer. Read books. Watch your own dogs. Go down to the dog park and watch other people's dogs. Attend seminars. Read articles. Join email lists. Truly try to understand and love your dog, that’s all that is really needed.
