How to Talk to Your Dog

Talking to Your DogSome people would rather talk to their dog than to other people, and can you blame them? Dogs seem to listen intently to their owners– especially poodles. Indeed, poodles are noted for their high intelligence among canines. Among the many breeds, poodles rank at or near the top of intelligence lists for their ability to understand and obey a new command with fewer than 5 repetitions.

Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for a reason. It’s like they have an innate ability to understand humans. Research has shown that they understand human communication in a way other animals do not. They’re special.

So how can you talk to your dog? Well, for starters, people tend to create short and simple sentences for their dogs. They also raise their voices to a higher pitch. In a way, it’s the same way a person talks to a baby, right? Surprisingly, this works well. Dogs seem to like it.

Generally, people give dogs commands, such as “sit,” “roll over,” and “(come) here.” Repeating the dog’s name over and over conditions the dog to know when their human owner is calling them/talking to them. Saying things like “good boy” while rubbing the dog in a comforting way makes the dog feel loved and cared for– the nicer you talk to your dog, the more likely he or she will like you and want to be around you.

It’s a good idea to combine words with gestures. Use your arms like an Italian would when speaking– things like pointing to a person or object can be understood by dogs!

Over time, dogs have adapted well to living in a human environment. There’s a special bond between pet dogs and their owners, enhanced by both verbal and nonverbal communication.
