Pet lovers are amazing ;)(pun intended). Quite often we find dogs to listen and communicate better with us than most of the humans.
But the reality is that the dogs don't speak our language and hence we fail to understand the signals they try to send us to communicate.
Therefore, we have created an animated breakdown for all the paw lovers having trouble understanding their dogs body language.
1.) Calm Cucumber

How to spot an anxious pup? Dogs partially hold their ears back and tail low and tucked. The biggest clue an anxious dog show is when they give the 'Whale look'. They turn away their gaze to show the white of their eyes.
5.) Dominant Dog
Confident dogs are considered dominant dogs. Whenever a dog tries to shows their dominance, they'll keep a direct eye contact, nudge or mount with authority.
It is very important to watch this body language as a dominant dog can interpret dominant behavior from other dogs or humans as a threat.
