If I were to visit Italy or Greece, I would be lost because I donâ€™t have the skills for adequate verbal communication there.
But if I sent my dog to Italy or Greece, my dog would be able to communicate just fine with every dog that lives there. Thatâ€™s because dogs donâ€™t depend on verbal communication.
Lately Iâ€™ve been working in several of my classes with clients who put too much emphasis on the power that they believe verbal communication should have over a dog. And thatâ€™s a mistake, because Iâ€™ve been to many countries around the globe and I, just like my dog, have been able to communicate with dogs around the world just fine.
