Bobbie the standard poodle is a great listener. Like many dogs she turns her head to the side. Whether she does this to hear better or whether she does this because she gets great ‘feedback’ from us I guess we may never know. It is of course rather cute. We humans do this too. You may not realise but when someone’s headed is tilted we feel that they are listening to us – when you are next in a meeting observe your colleagues and friends.
