Hello fellow pet-lovers!
I hope that you enjoyed Lea's first guest post, "Doggie Language," but you can check it out here if you missed it.
As you already know, I came across Lea's first article while networking with the author of Learning From Dogs, Paul. The author of the Paws Give Me Purpose blog, Lea, wrote a subsequent post that is currently featured on Paul's site (you can view the original post here). I fell in love again, with her heartwarming way of channeling the language of dogs, so I asked for permission to share her second post with you all as well.
I hope that you enjoy learning further tips in Doggie Language Continued:
Now, most of us aren’t mentalists or even Dr. Doolittle, so here are some things your dog may do and what they are trying to say to you:
Dogs make vocalizations and gestures using their face and body just as us humans do in order to express their feelings. While some of these gestures can appear similar to ours, they can have very different meanings. It is my hope that my original post on the subject and in this follow up, I have helped you learn a little more about how to interpret your dog’s various actions and that you’ve learned something new about how to communicate more effectively with your own pup!
Sources and further reading:
When I was reading this I was struck by Lea reminding me, and all other dog lovers, that the role of the gestures and faces of our dogs so closely matches how we humans communicate non-verbally. No wonder the bond between dog and human can be so close and wonderful.
