How Do Dogs Like To Be Talked To? – DogTime (

As dog lovers, we’re all probably guilty of using baby talk around our pups. We can’t help it. But do dogs enjoy being talked to like babies, and do they benefit from such speech? How do dogs like for us to talk to them?

Well thank goodness I’m not a crazy for talking to my dog like we were pretending we’re both three years old. It’s got scientifically-documented social and behavioral benefits for the dogs and a feeling of warm fuzzies for me, so that’s all I need.


What do you think?

This is so true! Dog’s really rely on tone and pitch to understand what we want 🙂 I’m glad to know that my baby talking to my pups can be validated lol
