Do Dogs Understand People?

The difference between dogs and people is that dogs speak another language. To start with a little joke, here is what you should understand. Just click the picture to read the joke. The only problem between us and them is that we don’t understand them and don’t know how to communicate. Dogs only understand gesture and the energy around gestures. Most of the time people make mistakes when they choose their dog because they have a different state of mind.

One example is that busy people choose dogs that are young and need to consume the energy that they have and don’t have enough time to stay with them and train them to be receptive. For that, people need to be calm and assertive and to bring their dogs to the same energy (that is calmness) that they have. In order to do this, you have to walk them every day, run to consume their energy and they will follow.

Most people take their dogs to training because they do not know how to calm a dog. That is only because the owner of the dog doesn’t know how to be an assertive leader. I said leader because dogs are followers and they always need to know from you what they should be doing. That is why dogs always stare at you all day. It’s because they need do to something. The simple fact that you need to know about training dogs all by yourself is that dogs need to be trained just like children who don’t speak.

Dogs are very intelligent and reliable because, no matter what you do, they do not know the meaning of the word hate. For example, if you walk down the street and you see a dog that is showing you his teeth, of course you will get scared and say that he is mad. The only problem is that the example dog is not mad. He is just protecting himself because he is scared of humans and was maybe mistreated by a lot of people until he met you. Just like with a person, to gain his trust you have to work for it. The only way to do that is to be a calm person, with a low level of energy.

As far as you can see, the only problem between us and them is that we don’t know how to speak or understand what they are saying in their own language. Dogs can be trained to help people in a lot of ways but that it takes time.
