What Your Dog’s Body Language Actually Means


We love our three dogs. They are a big part of our life. Every one of them has a different personality, needs, and wants. That is a part of what makes them so much fun.

It turns out your dog is always trying to tell you things, even dogs as aloof as ours are. That steady unwavering gaze means he loves you. If your dog brings you an item, he isn’t necessarily asking you to throw it. He just wants to give you a gift. Several of my friends have dogs who like to lean on people. This leaning behavior is your dog’s version of cuddling. Or, you may have a dog like our oldest who seems to have taken the role of spokesperson for all three. Denali is now telling me they are all hungry and need to be let out.
