Body Language in Dogs

Happy New Year from all of us at Countryside. We hope this year is a good year for you and your pets. Today I’d like to talk about body language in dogs. Dogs communicate with each other through a number of modalities including sound, smell and vision. Some examples of sound are growling, barking and crying. An example of smell is territorial urine marking.

I’ve always found it fascinating that even though dogs and humans are different species their body language is so similar. Here are some interesting and amusing examples.
