[VIDEO] Talk to your dog with body language

Dogs are masters of reading our body language. Playing the hide-and-treat exercise with them is an excellent way to help strengthen those lines of communication. Here’s Penny in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwHxIj1lI2A

  1. They all are great! Congrats! Think now you can beat the guy with the three nutshells what hangs around in our shopping center :o)

  2. Victoria says:

    i am going to try that this weekend – looks like a really fun thing to do w/them and like you said it helps them to better follow your lead!

  3. What a great fun idea! Whee wonder if whee guinea pigs might be good at this. That’s definitely something for us to try one rainy day!

    I was jumping up and down, find it find it woof

  5. I read/saw somewhere a while ago that pointing doesn’t work all that well with dogs because they look at our hand instead of the direction we’re pointing. I wonder what would happen if you stood farther away from the cups and then pointed?? Maybe that will be lesson #2!

    We actually learned to follow hand motions in puppy school in Germany. Now we are just using our noses to find stuff. We blow Mom’s mind everyday with our noses. The odd thing is we can watch her hide something, we can even see it as it isn’t really hidden, but we blow right by and use our noses to locate it rather than our eyes, but I think you guys may be more sight hound types.

  7. Such smart doggies! Mom usually tries to trick me, hiding treats and making me use my nose to find them. I want her to point – I will pay attention…. I swear!

    Love and licks,

    I’m not falling for that. My peeps are trained just to give it to me and cut out the fluff stuff.

    We might have to try that!

  10. Good game. We did something similar in the Dognition test. Jack has a tendency to always go to his left, so it’s something I should work on with him.

  11. Misses this over the week-end. Didn’t realize you had worked up to six cups,that is impressive! Love how Dutch ambles out to the cups hehehe!

  12. way to go penny! you are the bomb

  13. Not seen this test before will try on my mm’s 3 year old westie 🙂

  14. That Penny is one smart cookie. I doubt Sam would follow my pointing, he’s too ADD to be able to focus (unless cheese is involved-then all bets are off). Glad to see you got your bath mat back! 🙂
