What your dog’s behavior say about their mood?

As a pet’s parent, you know all the little things about pets, from the way they look when they want to feed to the way they poke you when they want to hug you. But do you understand the signs of each of their emotions? Researchers say that the emotional abilities of dogs are the same as those of 2-3-year-old children. In other words, they experienced many of the same emotions as young children. It’s a bit surprising to think that they can experience anything from happiness, fear, and anger. Just like a two-year-old, your dog cannot fully express his feelings. They rely on their actions and body language to convey their feelings.

1.Bitting

If puppies learn to communicate with their parents, they will bite you. It usually happens when they play because puppies often use their mouths when interacting. It may also happen during training. However, if your puppy bites frequently, it is important to stop before it becomes more destructive canine behavior in the future. Dogs bite people out of fear or aggression. Can you see what caused your pet to do this? Is his behavior affecting his actions? If it is difficult for you to teach your dog not to bite, consider working with a professional dog trainer or, better to work with a behavioral veterinarian.

2. Digging

Have you walked into the backyard and found that your dog has gracefully dug out your new bedding? Well, although this behavior can annoy you, there are usually good reasons. Maybe they are trying to hunt animals, find a cool place in the sun, or just become the next Houdini! But this behavior is normal dog behavior. If the problem persists, it is best to talk to your veterinarian because another problem may arise; for example, because of boredom or fears your pet is doing so.. 

3. Circling

Dogs that cannot stop running in circles may have health problems. Yes, chasing their tail is sometimes fun, but if he does it persistently, there is a problem under the surface. An ear infection can cause your dog to do circling, but persistent tail chasing may be due to the Bull Terrier. Of course, dogs may have other reasons. Older dogs may have idiopathic vestibular syndrome, which may alarm you, but all dogs are at risk of poisoning or brain tumours. Only your veterinarian can determine the cause of your dog’s hovering, so please take him to the vet.

 

4. Panting

Dogs generate most of the heat from their mouths. If your dog is breathing heavily, it may be too hot, so it will regulate its body temperature. However, it is important to pay attention to the shortness of breath, as this can be painful. Help your dog regulate their body temperature and make sure they are fully hydrated before engaging in any sports activities, especially in warm weather. If your dog is injured, take him to the vet immediately. Other health problems can also show signs of increased dyspnea. Therefore, if you have any questions, please feel free to consult your veterinarian.

 

5. Yawning

Even if you think he needs some sleep, a dog yawning usually doesn’t mean he is tired. Your dog may be interested in taking a nap, but this may also show signs of anxiety or stress. If your dog often yawns next to strangers, please take a moment to watch it. Either your dog receives the energy that they don’t like, or they are afraid for a less obvious reason. In any case, the forced introduction is not a good idea.

 

6. Sitting on Your Feet or Between Your Legs

This is often confused with possessive behavior, but it is usually a manifestation of fear or tension. Dominance is rarely a problem; your dog may try to feel safer by staying around.
