Do you whine, bark or growl? - - Training Dogs

Dogs understand the tone of our voice more quickly than the meaning of our words. Their communication fits into three basic categories — whine, bark, growl.

Praise (“Happy talk”)

  • - High-pitched, enthusiastic
  • - If praising correctly, Lizzie will respond by wagging tail.
  • - find the tone that makes Lizzie look happy when you praise her.

Command (bark) mid-range to neutral

  • - Not requesting, but telling Lizzie.
  • - No nonsense, matter of fact, short words.
  • - be direct when commanding

Corrective (growl) guttural tone

  • - Never done with anger
  • - use deep serious tone for corrections. NO YELLING.
  • - Stay calm
