Displays Of Submissive Behavior In Pets

The existence of social hierarchies is also present among animals, that of various species. The ones that are placed on the lower ranks have different ways to show their submissiveness to the ones more dominant to them. Below are some examples.

● When a dog is submissive to a dog more dominant to him, he lies on his back so his belly can be exposed.

● Showing submission to larger and adult bearded dragons means young bearded ones puffing up or waving an arm.

● To show submission, hamsters scream before they flip on their backs or stand up.

● Mounting each other is the guinea pig’s way of declaring dominance; the dominant one mounts on the submissive one.

If you have concerns about your pet’s behavior, contact your animal hospital Crown Point, IN.
