do Dogs think?
Does your dog think? More than hundred of people asked me this question.
Yes! Dog thinks like a dog. Sometime it is uncanny for you when you
start observing closely to your pet. Certainly you will feel that
your dog can read your mind. But is it your mind he is reading or
has he memorized your behavior pattern?
Here is an example: Anamika always tie Deeva with a chain before
leaving for her job. After a month or so she was surprised when
Deeva came to her with chain in her mouth when she was about to
leave. '' what an intelligent dog is Deeva," thought Anamika
, she knows that I am going to my office.
Sometime you think the dog can read your mind and dog also give
the same appearance. But it is not true. Dogs play with each other
physically and communicate also trough body language what actually
happens dogs always wants to please their master. They learn to
anticipate your habits and quickly they become expert through reading
your action and body language.
Deeva noticed and observed that Anamika gets ready, spend some time
in front of mirror for putting on her makeup, tie her with chain
and leave for job every morning. Deeva's cue to get chained was
seeing Anamika getting ready and putting her makeup in front of
Then one night, Anamika and I planned to go for dinner, When Anamika
started her makeup putting on, Deeva came there with chain in her
mouth. Then we realized the Deeva had not been reading her mind,
but had learned the daily routine through observation.
It is totally give and take system. The more time you devote with
your dog the better you will become at knowing what your dog thinks.
Very soon you will come to know through his body language, his way
of waging tail, his eyes, his up and down ears that what he is thinking
at the moment. In this way you too can learn what goes through your
dog's mind by using your power of observation.
