Dogs have an inate built-in ability to read people. It’s something that we sometimes overlook, but it can be really useful.
Dogs can obviously sense far more about a person than we can on first glance – stress levels and hormones in particular.
I met someone recently who put in lots of time and effort with her, with the patience of a saint and within days, Kizzy decided she adored them. In fact, she began to go them instead of me when she heard a scary noise!
If only everybody was willing to put in that level of calm, quiet, waiting for her to choose to approach type behaviours, I could probably change Kizzys behaviours a lot more effectively.
