No animal can understand human communication better than the domestic dog. Dogs carefully observe and listen to us, because they depend on humans and rely on their cues. Dogs try really hard to understand our behavior and respond accordingly. In turn, handlers should be able to understand canine communication and behave consequently. Correct communication increases environmental predictability and decreases the stress of working dogs, therefore improving their welfare and enhancing their focus and performance.
