Callie’s dog communication: A Snort with a Messsage

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

Understanding dog communication is like solving a puzzle.   Our “best friends” often create what I call  “scratch-your-head moments.”  They do something a little unusual, and, more often than not, they are trying to tell us something.  The trick is to figure out what this particular dog communication might mean.

Callie often uses a “snort” or “grunt” sound to communicate.  She’s not trying to form words, but it’s as if she’s figured out that we humans communicate with our voices.  Maybe she’s really trying to communicate a message, but, if nothing else, she uses her “snorts” as a way of saying, “Hey, I’m trying to tell you something.”

Yesterday, I was sitting at Lake Arrowhead, doing some work on my laptop computer, when Callie sent a dog communication message.  She stood on all four legs, about six feet away from me and making good eye contact, and she let out a huge “grunt.”

It would have been easy to simply ignore Callie’s “grunt” and say something like, “Hi, Callie, nice ‘grunt,’ now let me get back to my work.”  But I’ve learned, through years of paying attention and writing “My Doggie Says… Messages from Jamie,” that puzzling doggie behaviors like this almost always contain some kind of dog communication — a message for the decoding.

In trying to interpret Calllie’s messages, one of my first suspicions always has to be, “How about giving me a nice scratch on on my tummy or my neck?”  But Callie was standing too far away, so that didn’t make any sense.

My next guess was, “I need to go out and pee,” so I got up and walked toward the door, but Callie didn’t follow.  So, another wrong guess.

So now I’m racking my brain to figure out what Callie could be trying to tell me.  Was she asking to be fed?  No, she had eaten breakfast about an hour earlier.

What about Callie’s water dish?  Callie drinks a lot of water in the dry, five-thousand-foot elevation, of Lake Arrowhead.  Sure enough, the water dish was empty.  I topped it up; Callie took some big slurps; and she curled up on the floor by the fireplace.

Dog communication mission accomplished!

Dana Miller Deep in Conversation With A Favorite Friend

Dana Miller has learned to listen to animals and understand their very-often-interesting views of life.  It turns out, for example, that some “lost” animals aren’t really “lost;” they are just looking for a different life.  Dana is an animal communicator extraordinaire, and she has lots of wonderful stories about her interactions with animals.  She has fabulous insights into their energy levels — which can be enormous — and their quality of thought.  Learn how and why Dana learned to see the spiritual side of animals.

Dana also talks about how each “animal communicator” brings something a little different to the task.  Not all approach animal communication in the same way.  Hear Dana’s “FIVE important things to remember about animals as learned through communication.”

Train Your Dog To Be A Social Animal

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Here’s another example of Callie being a “social” dog — at Lake Arrowhead Village.  Like Jamie, Callie loves the Wishing Well gift shop, because they have the BEST puppy treats.  Notice the “wishing well” in the background of this photo.

Callie Enjoys Socializing at Lake Arrowhead Village

Train Your Dog To Be Social

Dogs are very social animals — if allowed to be. Sometimes the difficult part of “training” your dog to be social is for you to lose your fear that something bad will happen if your dog interacts with other dogs or people. Bad things can happen, of course, so you have to know your dog’s temperament — and be ready to protect it, if necessary.

But too often, the owner’s fear gets in the way of a good socializing experience. If your dog feels you pulling on its leash when people, or dogs, approach, it might get the idea that it needs to be protective, or defensive. So, to train your dog to be social, train yourself to trust your dog in social situations. Most of the time, dogs are happy to see each other, and they get along just fine. Be ready to act, if necessary, but don’t turn your dog into a wallflower by holding it back from social situations.

In these situations, like lots of others, communication with your dog can be important.  When dogs or people approach, “read” your dog’s reaction.  Is it happy?  Apprehensive?  Afraid?  Eager to make friends?  As you get better at understanding your dog, you will be better able to help it in social situations.

It also helps to understand your dog’s “social personality.”  For example, Callie often approaches other dogs in a very submissive manner — making it clear that she wants to be friendly and not aggressive.  She often lies down — or even flops over on her back — in a very submissive way.  She makes lots of doggie friends this way.

As is often the case, dog training is more about people training than anything else.

How to Improve your Dog-Talk Skills: Look for Patterns in your Dog’s Body Language

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

You might be surprised how much your dog is communicating with you. You just have to learn to speak its language, which is often behavior-related. A dog’s actions can speak volumes; you just have to be clever about figuring out the message in “dog talk.”

There is no better way to understand your dog’s personality and nurture its “dog nature” than to tune into your dog’s body language and become more interactive with it.

There was a peculiar pattern in Jamie’s (the heroine of “My Doggie Says…: Messages from Jamie”) decisions about “where to be.” I believe that dogs are pretty thoughtful about deciding where to hang out. They often choose places for specific reasons.
