Can your pets understand what you are saying when you are just talking and not giving commands
You can teach animals to understand certain words, and when they come up in conversion the animals respond.
Our cat understands quite a few words, it just chooses to ignore them. But that's cats for you.
However if the word "pigeon" is mentioned then it goes nuts. Its the only word which gets a reaction each time and it doesn't matter whether it is in conversation or directed at the cat.
Fortunately the word doesn't come up in conversation very often.
In a truly literal sense the simple answer is no.....
However, all animals are experts in reading body language and the tone of your voice which is why most animal training involves a strong visual signal as well as a command. Many people chat away to their pets and sometimes you see the animal, especially dogs, looking on intently head to one side. Owners tend to say, “Oh look he understands every word I say....”
When in fact the animal is thinking, ‘What the hell is she on about now, and where’s my dinner....?
