Eye to Eye with Your Dog
One of the most effective techniques for connecting with your dog is getting close and going eye-to-eye. When you have your dog’s complete attention with this technique your dog has no choice but to listen.
Your dog looks (stares) into your face and eyes to interpret your thoughts. I’ve found this to be the best way to reach your dog’s heart and mind on a moments notice.
Practiced correctly your dog will love it. If you haven’t noticed already, dogs can be very jealous. They crave your attention and affection. It’s especially satisfying to them when you gently put your hands around your dog’s head from behind its ears and draw yourself close, nose-to-nose.
Use this method to teach a lesson. Use this method to correct behavior. Above all use this method to deliver praise and affection.
