Common Canine Behaviors And Their Meanings

The body language of dogs can show a lot about what they are thinking, requesting, or feeling. While growling or wagging of the tail are universally understood, a dog waving his legs in the air or licking his owner’s face will surely leave anyone wondering about the meaning of these gestures.
