Canine Body Language – Happy Dogs

Dogs tell us many things with their body language. We will be posting a new body language message in each new blog.

Many people do not know how to read a dog’s body language.  Yet, that is the way dog’s communicate best.  Sometimes a dog is stress and finally reacts with a growl or a bite after trying to communicate in the only way they know how.  The owner sometimes feels that the behavior has come out of the blue because they are not aware of what to look for to see how a dog is actually feeling about what is happening.  The easiest place to start is to be able to identify when a dog is feeling happy and relaxed.

Here are happy dogs……soft, squinty eyes, relaxed faces, tongues out. Check in soon for other signals that dogs display to tell us how they are feeling.
