Reason #2 - they've seen a lot of bizarre and bad behavior at work (and they're called in to help deal with it).

We Say More Than We Realize – Body Language Can Be Powerful
by Beverly Jones - Apr, 2010
In a dog training ring it can be easy to see that our success depends on how we move our bodies. With practice we discover that every movement, and even each shift in our attitude, may change the way our dogs respond to our commands.
