Considering the thousands of years that humans have lived closely with dogs, it's surprising that we don't understand dogs better. We teach them to understand us (and what we want), so let's take opportunities to understand them (and what they like/don't like).
I want to share some great sites that have some amazing resources around understanding dog 'body language'. These sites also have great learning opportunities for our kids! Please visit www.thefamilydog.com/stop-the-77/ and doggonesafe.com/
Dog bites rarely happen without warning... we just miss the warnings if we don't know what to look for. Dogs will use their eyes, ears, mouth, tail and whole bodies to show us how they’re feeling. Let's learn and teach each other, as well as our kids in order to prevent dog bites, dogs ending up in shelters, and from being euthanized.
Sandy is the ultimate dog lover, who can't get enough of learning and researching 'all things dog'! Join in this journey if you also love dogs and love to learn more ways to make the lives we share with our dogs the best they can be.
