Your dog has a braid of three Energetic Personalities and they help you to understand what your dog needs for a happier and more fulfilled life.
Just like you, your pup responds to the world through their five senses and knowing which sense is the most important for them, gives you an opportunity to respond to their unspoken needs.
Your pup’s senses, play an important part in helping them to understand their world and their surroundings.
Your dog’s Energetic Personality Imprint is a braid of Energetic Personalities. The Connecting Spiritual Personality– is common to all dogs. But what makes your pooch special and unique are the two Energetic Personalities in the braid, measured at the SolePath Institute.
Smell is the dominant of the five senses for dogs. It is thought that their sense of smell is thousands of times more acute than ours. However, as a Connecting Spiritual they do experience the world through all of their senses – hearing, touch, sight, taste and smell.
Of the five senses, the most powerful one for your Emotional Charismatic is SMELL.
They have a sensitivity to odour or scent, favourable or foul, and have distinct preferences. Smells will trigger either a positive response such as safety, or negative feelings such as fear or uneasiness. Through smells, they gather information.
Scent games are exciting and fun for them. Synthetic odours will be difficult for your Emotional Charismatic to tolerate.
Of the five senses, the most powerful one for your Caring Compassionate is TASTE.
They have a sensitivity to the taste and texture of anything that goes in their mouth. They have distinct personal taste and texture preferences. This sense of taste is acute when they are young and deteriorates with age.
They are probably picky eaters, don’t force the same food onto them every day. Pay attention to and encourage their flavour choices.
Of the five senses, the most powerful one for your Responsible Inspirational dog is SIGHT.
They perceive things through their eyes, and how things look and what they see has a profound impact on their experience of the world.
Your Responsible Inspirational dog is likely to react more strongly to visual stimuli than dogs with other Energetic Personalities. You will find that they are interested observers and love to look at what is going on around them.
They will appreciate toys with contrasting colours and toys that light up.
Of the five senses, the most powerful one for your Cool Intellectual dog is SOUND.
Compared to humans, all dogs have acute hearing, and your Cool Intellectual dog has an even greater sensitivity to sound. They love to listen to your soothing voice and calm, soft music. They can be very disturbed by anything discordant or noisy, and this includes sharp sounds, jarring music or loud voices.
They are very sensitive to your tone.
It’s important to note that the ear regulates their sense of balance, equilibrium and well-being.
Of the five senses, the most powerful one for your Physical Intuitive is TOUCH.
Your dog is acutely aware of their body, and they are sensitive to pressure, temperature and other sensations. They will respond well to physical affection, light massage, scratching and stroking. Brushing, with a massaging dog brush, activates their nerve endings and they will love receiving this affection through touch.
Your Physical Intuitive uses their sense of touch to communicate with you and with other dogs.
