How big is your dog’s vocabulary? The more you recognize and understand your
dog’s communications, the better for him and for you.
Dogs use complex communication to avoid physical conflict
and much of that communication is manifested in body language–it may be accompanied by vocalizations. Sadly, I have seen people scold their dogs
for communicating and I have seen people attempt to communicate with their dog
in ways that will undoubtedly make the dog think that their person is a bit on
the demented side….sigh.
