Dog Body Language

Body Language

Dog body language is a complex and fascinating topic. By learning to read your dog's body language, you can better understand their thoughts and feelings.

Tail Wagging

A wagging tail can mean a lot of things, depending on the context. A slow wag can be a sign of happiness, while a fast wag can be a sign of excitement or aggression.

Ear Position

The position of a dog's ears can also be a clue to their mood. Ears that are perked up and forward are a sign of alertness or interest, while ears that are pulled back are a sign of fear or submission.

Eye Contact

 Eye contact can be a powerful way for dogs to communicate with each other. Direct eye contact can be a sign of dominance or aggression, while averted eye contact can be a sign of submission or fear.


Panting is a way for dogs to cool down, but it can also be a sign of stress or anxiety.

Lip Licking

Lip licking can be a sign of a variety of emotions, including nervousness, excitement, or anxiety.


Snapping is a warning sign that a dog is about to bite.
