Dogs Don't Speak English! Or German. Or Swahili. Or Portuguese! Contributed by Glenda Herrin, Certified Dog Trainer and Owner of Heeling Hounds, El Paso, TX
We human beings are so accustomed to communicating through verbal language that it's difficult for us to comprehend that dogs don't understand English! Owners often attempt several versions of the same command to try and get a dog to comply without realizing that yelling 14 different versions of "Come here!" ("Come! Get over here! Hey, Sparkey! Come on! You better get in here! Come on over!", etc.) makes no sense to the dog no matter how many different ways they put it if they haven't taught the dog what those words mean. If someone were to tell you in German "Dort bleiben!" --would it help that they tried three different ways to you "Stay" or maybe tried yelling it louder and louder? It's the same with a dog---he will hear you speaking (or yelling), cock his head like the RCA mascot, and wonder what on earth all those sounds mean. Dogs communicate primarily through the sense of smell, through energy, and through body language. Unless we attach meaning to words by teaching dog what the sounds mean, they will not magically respond to a command just because we yell it over and over or even louder and louder.
The Humane Society could use some help! I will even pick up and deliver!
