Did you know that dogs and other animals respond more to the pictures in your mind, rather than the words that come out of your mouth?
I never realized that my dogs were picking up the pictures in my head, until I took a class on Animal Communication in 1998. There I quickly learned that my one year old labrador, Bonnie, was focused on the pictures in my head – and not the words I said. Sure, she knew the word COME, but when the picture/thought in my head was “She’s NOT going to come, she’s going to go over to the left and sniff those bushes”, then that is exactly what she did. She went to the left and sniffed the bushes! That is when I began to change my thoughts, and like magic, Bonnie started doing more of what I wanted her to do.
Animals read our thoughts all the time, and they communicate with each other through their own thoughts. Animals assume that when they send a thought to a human that the human understands. A good example is a dog who chews your furniture. If you have a dog who is chewing your favorite couch and you say “Do
n’t do that”, the dog doesn’t get a picture of “Don’t”. What the dog gets is a picture of chewing the couch. If you show your dog pictures in your mind (on a regular basis) of the dog walking by the couch, going over to something they are allowed to chew, such as a bone, then actually chewing the bone, it can have a good outcome.
This can also can help with dogs that are peeing inside the house. Instead of thinking about how angry you are going to be when you find a puddle on your floor, imagine your dog peeing in the grass or on a potty pad. Remember, your dog doesn't understand that you are angry when you think about your dog peeing on the floor, the dog only sees you thinking about them peeing on the floor. So in turn, peeing on the floor must be okay! I mean you thought of it didn't you? Forget about the bad behavior, only focus your thoughts on the good behavior such as peeing outside or chewing the bone.
Apply these examples to what you are experiencing with your dog. Watch your pictures. Watch your thoughts. Watch what happens!
