Realizing what a learning curve it was for me to become really good at reading behavior, I thought it would be beneficial to write consecutive tips on how to read your dog. Throughout the next few e-mails you will learn what your dog looks like when aroused verses being relaxed.
Today I am going to focus on fearful behavior. Begin to notice the signs below:
The more of the above signs you see in your dog the more your dog is feeling fear. If you are seeing only a few signs then the fear is present and it is of a lesser degree.
If your dog is feeling fear in situations my advise is to contact Four Legged Scholars so we can switch the response to happiness 🙂
Also remember any dog that feels fear if pushed could bite.
