Sample text

When we are angry or in a bad mood, our displeasure is what is conveyed to the animal, instead of what we are really trying to tell it. If we only communicate our own expectations to an animal without understanding what that animal is trying to communicate to us, we will fail to connect. How, then, is it possible to have a true bond with a companion animal if we have no way to communicate with each other? Understanding Body Language Animals communicate in a different way than humans do, but they tend to communicate with a more consistent set of actions and signals.

University of Vermont student Jessica Katz agrees, based on her experience as an intern at a bird refuge: “Body language is as important with birds as it is with dogs and other companion animals. And this internship was all about body language. Reading birds is by far the most important concept anyone who interacts at the refuge needs to comprehend and an ability that I improved at superbly. When I first walked into the refuge, I had no idea that a cockatoo’s tongue-clicking motion is related to happiness or that sometimes head-bobbing isn’t an aggressive behavior.

Whether in a job or a relationship, humans benefit from feeling necessary. It gives us purpose. And for many teens, that need is fulfilled by having a companion animal. Kelli says, “With people you’re always running the risk of being dumped on. And that’s a tough thing to accept whenever you’ve given someone so much and they barely notice. I mean, maybe it’s just human nature for them to not think it’s a big deal. But when you give something to a dog, they always give back. And they don’t ask for much in return.
