Reading Dog Body Language


Throughout the month we will be sharing photos, videos and articles to help you become a pro at reading your and other dogs body language. Dog "speak" through body language first and vocalizations second, being able to understand what they are saying at any moment will help you understand what your dog is feeling and help to keep him/her safe. Additionally you will know more about other dogs in the environment and learn to respect dogs signals.
