Your dogs ears, tail and posture tell you all you need to know about how they're feeling without the need for words. Knowing how to read your pooch's body language is a huge advantage for any dog owner or handler as they can measure how comfortable he is feeling in situations and react accordingly.
Shake your tail feather
One of the most common misconceptions of canine body language surrounds tail wagging. Most people believe that if a dog's tail is wagging, they must be happy and content. Whilst this is often true, tail wagging can also be a sign of frustration, over stimulation and arousal. The key to working out how your dog is feeling is to look at the speed of wag and the movement of the rest of their body.
Ear me out
Dog ears come in all shapes and sizes and your dogs ability to communicate with them depends on the breed. Regardless of their shape, most dogs ears can reveal secrets about how they are feeling depending on how they are positioned
