The other morning I had a revelation: I spend a lot of time talking to our dogs. Not just talking as in training language, but actually having full out conversations.
Most of these conversations involve me trying to make deals and rationalize with them, though sometimes I give them choices.
Embarrassingly enough, I was actually called out the other day by a passerby who stopped because he thought I was talking to him, but then I had to admit I was actually talking to the dogs.
I do know for training purposes you are really just supposed to use single small words, because miscellaneous sentences can confuse them. Though it seems I just can't help myself.
Am I the only one, or do you also have conversations with your pooches?
