"When people want to teach their dog a trick, they often use a verbal command because that's what we humans prefer," Prichard says. "From the dog's perspective, however, a visual command might be more effective, helping the dog learn the trick faster."
Dogs are our best friends. We cannot avoid communicating with your dogs, nor would we want to. We’re constantly sending messages with words, hand gestures, our eyes, and our scent. Training for agility and other dog sports means giving your dog a cue.
This entails communication to make it possible to get the correct behavior from your dog. Verbal communication together with paraverbal and nonverbal channels is key to precise communication while training.
