Understanding Your Pet’s Body Language

For first time dog owners, there is a need to cultivate a keen eye in order to be able to spot any messages that a dog’s body language wishes to convey thus able to respond accurately. Although domestication may have somehow blunted the dog’s sensitivity to the language of the wild, they still possess the natural instinct to communicate using its bodies. As a result of years of domestication and the environment, a dog’s body language does not follow a specific pattern when compared to other dogs. Generally, dogs wag their tails to show that they are happy and in recognition. When its tail is tucked between its legs, it shows fear and submission. Perked ears signify asking a question or being puzzled or ears may be held back in anger.

Being able to understand this unspoken language will enable you to better understand your dog and this will definitely strengthen the bond between your dog and you.
