The dog’s facial expression is not as rich as ours, so it is not easy to distinguish the dog’s emotion from the expression. So how to distinguish the dog’s mood? Although the dog’s face changes less, but their body language is very rich. So many times we can judge the dog’s mood through some actions.
1. Joy: when the dog vigorously wags its tail, gently twists its body, and jumps to the high place to show affection and lick the owner, it is the most common expression of joy. Sometimes a dog “laughs” too. Its expression is that its nose is covered with wrinkles, its eyes are soft, its upper lip is open, its teeth are exposed, its eyes are slightly closed, its ears are extended backward, and its nose makes a humming sound. Its whole body is smooth with hair, and its tail is light, and it is close to people.
2. Anger: when the dog is angry, his face expression is almost the same as when he is smiling. His nose is raised, his upper lip is pulled open, his mouth is grinning. The difference is that his eyes are wide, his eyes are sharp, his ears are tilted and straight, his mouth is not open, he makes a threatening sound, his limbs are firmly on the ground, his body is stiff, his hair is standing upright, his tail is steep or straight, and he keeps a certain distance from people. When he is so forward Fall down and lean back. You may be about to attack.
3. Mourning: when the dog is in mourning, his head is drooping and his eyes are not bright. He draws close to the owner and looks at the owner with praying eyes, or sleeps on the side of the dog.
4. Music: the dog’s tail swings high, the ears stand up, the head swings, the body bows, and sometimes the front paws are extended to show the intimacy with the owner and to ask for play. In addition, if the dog swings its tail, stands calmly and looks directly at the owner, it indicates that it is waiting or expecting; if the head of the dog is drooping, the ears are close, and the body is low, it indicates that it is obedient and awed to the owner. There are many changes in dog’s mood, but most of the time its performance is not typical, so for dog’s behavior, we still need to carry out careful observation and research, in order to more accurately grasp the dog’s mood changes.
