Dog’s Body Language and What it Means?


Much like spoken language, a lot can be lost in translation for many who aren’t fluent, and it’s important to understand that you cannot find any one assigned meaning to any movement.

While some meanings are more easily read than others, like a snarling mouth, you need to consider the overall demeanor and posture of a dog when attempting to understand what he’s trying to say, for safety’s sake.

While dogs use their bodies to communicate with us, they’re also reading our body and facial language so as to understand what we may be trying to say, or otherwise, the energy we’re projecting. To keep a dog at ease, Preventative Vet recommends always approaching slowly, offering your hand so he can get a whiff of your scent, and pet under the chin, rather than over the head, which can cause some dogs to become defensive.
