5 Dog’s Body Language Signs And It’s Meaning

Knowing how to read a dog's body language helps us better grasp and understand how our furry friend is feeling because there can be a motive for a dog's actions.

Ears Movement

When a dog's ears move around and flick back and forth, it may be a sign that the dog is trying to find out what is disturbing him. Dogs can struggle and become confused about how to appropriately respond to a strange scenario or unexpected sounds in their environment. There may be many explanations for this movement, such as a desire to play or go for a walk.

Showing Teeth

The tail of an aggressive dog will be raised. They have attentive, pricked ears. He'll probably be snarling, showing off his teeth, and have a wrinkled nose. Hackles, or raised hair around his shoulders and down his spine, will probably be seen on his back. Dogs do this to appear larger and more dangerous. They might stiff their body. Be alert and prepared if you notice a dog being stiff and distant when it usually acts distant because that dog can bite at any moment. If your dog exhibits this behavior, you should investigate the reasons or consult a veterinarian because there are several factors behind a dog's aggression.

When your dog is looking away and somewhat closing their eyes, have their ears back, and may even tuck their tail behind themselves. Even some pups will lift a paw.
