Do You Speak Dog?

Full disclosure: I do not yet speak dog.

As the “about” section of Northwest Pets DC’s website indicates, I have lots of experience with cats. I think I can safely say that I speak cat fluently.

But as a pet sitter who hopes to serve my canine community, I need to learn to speak dog. Which is why I was so grateful when a friend in Vancouver, Washington shared a few dog-centric resources with me. This friend is very plugged in to the dog training community, and I trust her recommendations without reservation. Today I want to share with you one of these resources about which I am particularly excited.

ISpeakDog has a highly-credentialed team of writers and dog trainers, including the organization’s founder, Tracy Krulik, who lives in nearby Ashburn, Virginia. You can read all about the team here.

This site is super accessible and contains a wealth of information, including videos. But what makes this resource stand out for me is the step-by-step guidance it gives in easy, digestible bites. I have just begun to explore its offerings, and look forward to really digging in further in the weeks to come.

If you would like learn to speak dog, or just want to brush up, I encourage you to take a look!
