We’ve all had our dogs interrupt a conference call or video meeting, so what if there was a way to train your dog to get your attention quietly?
Humans aren’t the only ones who can whisper. Believe it or not, our four-legged friends can speak softly, too. And here to show us how man’s best does it, is a striking husky named Moon on TikTok.
On Jan. 16, Moon’s TikTok account, thehuskymoon_, posted a video of the 5-year-old “Talking Husky” from New Jersey learning how to whisper. The 27-second video begins with Moon and his dad Mark sitting comfortably on a couch. “We’ve got to teach you how to whisper,” Mark says.
“No!” reads the caption as Moon barks very loudly back. Luckily, Mark is amused and continues on with a smile, “That is the complete opposite of a whisper.” Mark then motions with his hand and says, “Quiet.” This time Moon follows his cue and quietly utters a low grumble.
Attaboy, Moon! He is handsomely rewarded with a little doggie treat, a perfect example of positive reinforcement. The duo tries again—this time Moon having to work a little harder at mastering his inside voice. But, Mark is patient and only rewards Moon when he deems the decibel whisper-worthy! The entire scene absolutely adorable and a sweet moment between dog and dad.
