The EYES Have It.
If we want to understand our dogs then we must learn their language.
Dogs are all about body language and eye contact is very important in dog land.
When dogs first meet they avoid eye contact because in this setting eye contact means aggression. If a dog means no harm it will approach another dog slightly turned away from it but if it is challenging that dog it will be straight on with full eye contact. Every dog knows this signal; understanding it is a matter of survival.
Humans need to remember this; no matter how cute the dog is it will not like being looked at directly in the eyes.
