11 Things Your Dog Wants You to Know
Dogs in the US are very popular and almost 90 million families have dogs as their pets. These days, many families decide to get a dog and it seems that we should know everything about them. However, we can’t always tell if a dog is giving us a silent warning or if it’s feeling insecure. Perhaps there are a few things dogs would like us to know so that we can understand each other better.
We at Magicorama love dogs and this is why we prepared this selection of common signs of dogs’ body language so that you can understand what your pet is thinking or feeling.
- Ears are up but not forward;
- Mouth opened, tongue exposed;
- Tail relaxed.
The dog is relaxed and comfortable and saying “I like you.”
- Belly exposed;
- Turns its back to you.
This is the highest sign of trust. Rubbing the belly means that you are content and it’s like a mental treat for your furry friend.
Asking for attention
- Head on your knees;
- Direct eye contact;
- Ears relaxed.
Your dog is asking for some attention. When he pushes your hand with its nose, it is saying “Pet me!”
- Ears straight up or forward;
- Tail slightly above horizontal.
The dog is curious — it has found something very interesting and is going to explore.
Needs a break.
- Eyes wide;
- Ears forward;
- Tails horizontal and may move slightly from side to side;
- Stands slightly forward.
The dog is concerned about something but is not sure yet if it’s dangerous. At this stage, it is just alert and assessing the situation.
