Fortunately, this little dog managed to get his point across although I’m not sure why this young man wanted to know.
I wonder if Little Tommy Tinker understands him just as well.
A while back we set out to learn our dogs language, which has been an interesting journey. So much of what our dogs tell us does not come in the form of ‘words’.
One of our dogs ‘talks’ a lot. He has a different bark for a variety of different wants and emotions, our other dogs relies a lot on body language and ‘looks’. She will stare at us in different ways according with her needs, unfortunately she uses the same look for ‘feed me’ and ‘walk me’ so we need to guess a bit sometimes.
We figure that they do their best to understand our language so the least we can do is try and learn theirs.
So far it has been a lot of fun and it helps to cement us as the pack leaders.
