One little story I saw on TV.
A man was telling how he was training his new puppy. [Correction: We saw this in a friend's home, and asked why he made a small 'yelp'.]
He said that, when the puppy did something that he didn't want it to do, he made a little puppy-like yelp.
The dog's reaction was instantaneous. He did differently immediately.
Maybe we need to learn more basic communication techniques. 'Punishing' and 'forcing' and 'telling' seem so inefficient, nowadays.
Perhaps this technique would even work on ourselves, privately, of course.
Then again, I wonder what world leaders would do if we 'yelped' once in a while.
Oh my, I just got a picture of the audience yelping at a very unhappy announcement!
