Sometimes inter-species communication is all about keeping it simple. Nothing exotic or extraordinary….just basic understanding of the obvious. Animals usually understand and tell it like it is.
I had a conversation with a Dog Trainer a while ago who wanted to know what was the difference between what he does and what I do. He explained that he has commands, signals and structured techniques for training….and because of his clear communication, his dogs are devoted to him.
I told him I wasn’t sure there was a difference in our styles….it’s all communication in one form or another. Done with the intention of love, kindness and trust, animals know what we mean. The simpler we keep it, the easier it is.
