Thank you for this important post. Now I no longer have to listen to my parents speak gibberish when they praise me.


I never ever doubted that they didn't understand...did you?



I'm really not that surprised! Little stinkers; they get more than we give them credit for, I suspect. :)

The women who helped me adopt Frankie told me to say "No" in a very low voice. It is amazing how that stops Frankie in her tracks. Much better than a normal tone "NO". Best lesson in correcting her.

I so believe this. Our Little Bit knew what we were saying to her. She really did. We did spend a lot of time with her though to we were all on the same page.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I never doubted it either. But i love how science is validating what dog owners have known and have been ridiculed for saying,.


Yes, scientists finally know what we have known all along. That dogs are smarter than scientists. :-)
