We’ve taught our dog, Charlie, to talk to us before he
receives some benefit from us; such as a treat, meal or a walk. If he barks, he
loses. What we desire is a soft growling sound that signifies to us he is
requesting the offered favor. Sometimes he works his mouth for several seconds
before he emits any sound. Other times the movement ends with a whiny yawn.
