Newfoundland Training – Use The Right Body Language So Your Newfoundland Understands Mark Mendoza
Newfoundland Training • Newfoundlandsare highly intelligent creatures and many dog owners do not give them enough credit when it comes to the way they can read and understand our body language. • Some people have no idea that the body language that we display has a major impact on how well a Newfoundland will listen to us and obey our commands. • Using the correct form of body language can also quickly stop your Newfoundland from displaying an improper behavior.
Newfoundland Training • Let's use a very common example, such as the overexcited Newfoundland who likes to jump on every guest that comes to your door. • We all go through this with our puppy or adult Newfoundland at some point in time. • As soon as the guests arrive your Newfoundland is overwhelmed with happiness and excitement about who is at the door and whether or not they are going to play with him.
Newfoundland Training • Do they have Newfoundland treats? • What do they smell like? • Do they want to play? • How about I just jump all over them and see? • This is exactly what your Newfoundland is thinking if we were to decipher his emotional behavior.
Newfoundland Training • And meanwhile, you are giving every command possible to get your Newfoundland to stop being so excited and jumping on everyone. • You try shouting but it only makes him more excited. You try giving harsh and loud "Off" commands but it's not working. • Eventually, you are so stressed with yelling and trying to pull your Newfoundland off that it turns into one big chaotic party.
Newfoundland Training • And yes, the term "party" is a great way to explain it because to your Newfoundland you are just joining in on the fun and excitement that he is feeling. • Can you see now how your body language and the way you are communicating with her voice comes across to your Newfoundland? You are only adding to the situation as opposed to changing our Newfoundland's behavior.
Newfoundland Training • Communicate better with your Newfoundland by using the following body language tips:
Newfoundland Training • In the above example of the overexcited Newfoundland who can't seem to stop jumping all over the house guests, you understand now that your body language and excitability only made your Newfoundland feel more enthused about what it is he was doing. • Therefore, you must take a different approach to the situation, regardless of what action you are trying to communicate with your Newfoundland. Below are a few basic body language tips that you can use:
Newfoundland Training • 1. When you're angry at your puppy or adult Newfoundland, do not chase him around the house. You may be upset with them, but to your puppy, he thinks you're playing a game and he will run around forever. • 2. When you give your Newfoundland a command, display a very bold and upright body position. Stand up, chest forward, and head back. Your Newfoundland will have more respect and a slight bit of intimidation, which can help with training him.
Newfoundland Training • 3. If your Newfoundland is extremely excited then do not add to the problem by getting feisty. Instead, move slowly and talk in a soothing tone of voice. Display the same behavior you wish him to use. Doing so will calm him down and it will be much easier to change his behavior.
