People have communicated with dogs for thousands of years. Recent studies have shown that even puppies are better able than adult wolves, to follow human hand gestures. Indeed, dogs are thought to be the most sensitive species to human communication.

Despite this rich history of interspecies to and fro, people and dogs still often run into issues trying to get their messages across.
