Did you know that dog's do not communicate verbally? They have a very sophisticated non-verbal method of communication called Canine Body Language.


We often miss these subtle methods of communications and this can cause behaviour to escalate even to dog's biting.


Learning how to read and interpret subtle body language and facial expression will allow us to understand what a dog is really trying to tell us.


Being able to read a dog will allow you to understand and even predict canine behaviour.


This fascinating subject will open up a whole new way of communicating with your dog that you may not even have realised was possible. You will truly begin to speak dog.



Does a dog lying on its back really want a belly rub?


Is a wagging tail a sign of a happy dog?


Can dogs feel guilt?


This course will begin to answer some of the most misunderstood canine behaviours and as a result will change the way you interact with dogs forever. The course also contains a deep dive into Canine emotions, why do dogs make choices, how can we teach them to make good choices, what is a dog's emotional bucket and so on. We will also look at dog dog interactions and learn about the chain and what happens if the chain is broken.



This is the course your dog wants you to attend!



We course has been developed by the Dog Training College and taught under license. Our Canine Body Language Instructor regularly also teaches the course for the Dog Training College.
