Assessing Canine and Feline Behavior

In order to know what the dogs and cats are telling the owner and diagnose why the dogs or cats are misbehaving, it is important to know their body language and their society. This lecture will cover how dogs and cats communicate with each other and how shall we understand what they are telling us.

Dogs try to communicate with humans instead of trying to dominate us. The famous myth is that they are trying to dominate the family member and take us over so we need to “dominate” them. Is this really true? Looking at the canine languages, we must understand that they are not trying to dominate us but they are trying to tell us what they feel.

Cats are thought to be non-social animals and they like what they like to do and they do not care what humans do. Is this true? Do they live alone with our creating society? The truth is that they are social animals if they have enough resources. They communicate with each other and they even help each other. This lecture will cover how cats communicate to each other and what to look for when we communicate with them.
