Some dog parents may be concerned that the dog is wagging its tail at them, but what happens when it touches it and bites their hand? The truth is that a dog wagging its tail means that the dog is excited, but it does not necessarily mean that it is friendly. In addition, sometimes common dog behaviors don’t necessarily mean common sense perceptions of people. Here is a small side-by-side analysis of common dog behaviors:

[Calling Chapter]

  • 1. When a dog makes a soft woofing sound, it is in a happy mood.
  • 2. When the woofing is short and robust, it is an indication of caution and warning.
  • 3. A low whine implies a threat. When a dog makes this sound, if it wrinkles its nose, shows its teeth, and shrugs its hair, expect the enemy to be powerful and give a stronger threat.
  • 4. A dog’s screams are a sign of fear or pain.
  • 5. A slight low whine means looking for companionship, begging from the owner, and perhaps hunger.

When a dog is in a good mood, it also makes a little whimpering sound to indicate its comfort.

Tip

Dogs know nothing about human language. A dog’s obedience to its owner is judged solely based on the owner’s actions, eyes, and tone of voice. Therefore, it is important to use standardized and uniform movements, eyes, and tone of voice when training a dog so that it does not become overwhelmed by its owner’s commands.

[Body Language]

  • 1. Dogs have their front legs erect and their hair shrugged to reflect their strength and power. They also have this state when they warn foreigners.
  • 2. When obedient and friendly, the dog will lower its ears and tail, smooth its hair, and even lie down in front of the other person and wag its tail.
  • 3. If a dog meets another dog and lies on its back with all four feet facing the sky, it means there is no resistance to it and it is not willing to fight with it.
  • 4. When a dog is happy and angry, his ears will droop, but his expression is different. When you are happy and will wag your tail, but the eyes and the force of the wagging tail are different.
  • 5. Dogs walk back and forth when they are impatient and often sweep their tails.

Tip

The relationship between a dog and a dog depends on how many beautiful or unbearable encounters they had with different dogs when they were young. Poorly socialized dogs cannot understand the subtle signals of other dogs or send the right signals, so they often get into trouble.

Owners understand their dogs’ emotions through their actions and can teach them how they should react to other dogs at that time, which helps improve their socialization skills.

[Messy Bite Chapter]

  • 1. Dogs have a strong desire to live in packs, and some dogs cannot handle being single. When left alone, he often barks, howls, panics, and defecates anywhere because he fears intrusion from unwanted visitors. Some dogs left behind like to collect things that their owners have touched or used together to enclose their scent and form a barrier. If there are too few things to form a protective ring, the dog will chew them to pieces.
  • 2. Dogs that wag their tails can also bite. Wagging the tail means the dog is excited, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is friendly. It is important to read other body language before approaching a tail-wagging dog.
  • 3. When a dog bites a person, it bites the person’s hand first, usually because the dog had an unpleasant experience with a human hand as a child. These hands often come to pat or make the dog uncomfortable. When you want to pet a strange dog, don’t just put your hand on its head.
  • 4. Biting the body and biting the tail represents itching on the dog, which a skin disease or parasite may cause.

Tip

Dogs like to chew on furniture. In addition to what was mentioned above, dogs are curious and like to explore things by biting; they also like to chew on things to relieve discomfort during tooth replacement. Owners should first understand the situation and not scold them.

When you want to touch a cute dog, especially a strange dog, it is best not to touch your head; it will think you are trying to attack it. You can touch the dog’s back and chest because they are the safe parts and they are used to being touched.

[Interaction with humans]

  • 1. Dogs like to be near people. Dogs are pack animals. They have a social structure and intrinsic motivation similar to that of humans. If puppies are accustomed to being with people during the sensitive period from the third week to the 12th week of life, they can easily see their owner’s family as a pack.
  • 2. When the dog greets his friend human or another dog, he will have a backward smiling mouth, calm eyes, backward tilted ears and a curled tongue. After greeting, it will turn around and lean its butt against its owner. At this point, they want their head to be at a certain distance from the person. Standing this way allows the owner to stroke his back.
  • 3. The dog raises his head, wrinkles his nose, shows his sharp teeth, and pulls his lips up and the corners of his mouth forward, which means he is showing strength and giving you a chance to retreat. If you want to retreat, you should do so slowly and visibly so as not to provoke an attack.
  • 4. Dogs like to chase people. Many dogs like to chase pedestrians, bicycles, and cars, not because they want to bite them, but because they want to catch up with them and use up their excess energy. Of course, some dogs will bite because they are very excited or scared of the person.

Tip

A dog will use different barks and movements to communicate with its human, and in fact, many times it may just want to seize the opportunity to get more attention or to be able to be the owner; after all, dogs are emotional creatures too, sometimes they like to play, sometimes they get angry and want to be left alone.

Both owners and non-pet owners, in general, should understand dog behavior to avoid misunderstandings or unpleasant incidents. Photo Gallery
