A dog owner's body language is one of the most influential training tools available. Stand straight and firm to give your dog a sense that you are in charge and in command. Crouching down to your dog invites playtime. Even subtle cues such as your facial expressions can communicate your mood to your dog. Eye contact with your canine will let him know you mean business. A smile will let your dog know that you are pleased.
