We obsess over communication, spending countless hours observing and analysing how free-living dogs and companion dogs communicate and how dogs interpret our body language, expressions, tone etc.
You’ll learn how to use your own body language, gestures, eye contact, expressions, tone and movement to effectively communicate with your dogs.
You’ll also get better at noticing and interpreting your dogs communication, which strengthens relationships.
In our experience, this is a lifelong journey of getting better at reading smaller and smaller signals till the conversation between you and your dog almost seems telepathic…but it is not. It is zoosemiotics!
- What signals do dogs use to communicate and what do they mean?
- How we can communicate with dogs using our body language, gestures, eye contact, facial expression and tone. Our focus is not on what we can train dogs to understand, but what dogs naturally understand and respond to. We use examples of free-living dogs (street dogs) to explore this topic.
- Why should we care about stress in modern loving homes? What causes stress in our pampered pooches? How to recognise stress in dogs? What to do about it?
- Ways to safely approach and handle dogs, without need for muzzles, restraint and training. We only use our body language, gestures, eye contact, facial expression and tone for communication. This is the BHARCS way.
- The dominance myth and the truth about social structure of dogs, as revealed by lives of free-living dogs (street dogs)
- Understanding fear and fear related behaviours in dogs.
- Why, when and how to reassure dogs without crating or training them. We use the BHARCS way of communicating with dogs.
- Impact of punishments and training on dogs.
- Understanding how to draw boundaries without need for yelling, training or restraining. Here again, we only use the BHARCS way of communicating with dogs.
- Ergonomic equipment for dogs, outdoor management & stress-free leash handling. Here again, we rely on the BHARCS way of communicating, that does not need training.
