Behaviour

Dogs have a body language and behaviour all of their own. Much of it stems from their ancestors in the wild. Although, they will be slightly different for each dog and its breed.If the owner makes an effort to understand it, they'll have a happier relationship with their dog. A dog will think of a family as a pack, with a natural leader who may be a parent. A bold, untrained dog may think he or she is the leader!

When dogs bark or whine, they want your attention, often because they want to play or relieve themselves. Another reason they may bark is as a warning. For example, when a stranger arrives at the door. Barking can be a form of communication between dogs.An excited dog will bark, too. The various types of bark will sound slightly different. Of course, there are certain breeds that are more prone to barking than others.

You can tell some of the dog's feelings by looking at their tail. A wagging tail indicates excitement and friendliness. When their tail is between their legs, its a sign of sadness or submission. An upright tail means alertness and dominance. When it chases its tail, it is probably bored.
