Dogs have a language that allows them to communicate their emotional state and their intentions to the people around them. Although dogs do not use sounds and signals, much of the information that they send is through body language specifically their facial expressions and body postures. Understanding what your dog is saying can give you a lot of information especially about their emotional state, when they are nervous and spooked about something or what is going on around him, or when your dog is edgy and is about to snap at someone. To help dog owners and other pet lovers, here are some guided that will help you interpret some of the important messages that your dog is trying to send you.
Relaxed State and Approachable
When the dog is in its relaxed state, you can see their tail is down and their ears are up, not forward. They also have a loose stance on their feet. This means that they are unconcerned and unthreatened by any activities going on in his environment.
If the dog has detected something, or they have their interest on something, you can see that their ears begin to move forward, their eyes widened and their front feet are slightly leaned. It means that they are ready to move anytime.
Dominant and Aggressive
This is the easiest sign that you can see when a dog is dominant and aggressive. Their teeth begin to show, nose wrinkled and lips curled. You could also hear a slight growl. You would also notice their stance is about to pounce at something or someone. Their whole body is on alert mode, and is ready to accept any challenge.
