Default Your dog doesn't trust you when you are angry

"BYU psychology professor Ross Flom recently conducted a study to find out just how well dogs understand humans, specifically human emotion."

Someone teach that to my husband. He gets annoyed the dogs aren't doing something, raises his voice with frustration, and then they don't move or go where he wants because they are all confused. I try to tell him to calmly remind the dogs to move out of the way or they got in the wrong crate or whatever. It just doesn't sink in. I think partially because he believes dogs are not affected by what he says to the extent a child would be.

Oh and I thought I was on my own on this!! my friend is exactly the same as your husband Sure sometimes changing your tone and not the volume of your voice is ok but shouting doesn't improve the problem, how ever he is getting a bit better and it shows as the dog responds better too

I sometimes change my tone to be more "stern" if Hemset doesn't respond to me quickly enough, she seems to know she didn't "do good" but doesn't shut down or act oddly, she just gets more responsive for a while after. I don't think she's actually afraid of me when I do it, but of course I don't yell at her (I don't think I ever have).

Well, shifting our tone of voice and such is very different than getting angry, with anger, like fear, our smell changes and dogs pick up on that, also our facial expressions, movements and body language change, all things dogs observe, so it is possible to be a bit more stern without anger and get the necessary results. Anger, though, I find completely counter productive.
