A Guide to Canine Body Language

Published on March 27th, 2012

A good way to determine whether or not you can safely approach a dog is to take a look at its facial expressions and body language. Watch this video for an overview of the appearance of relaxed dogs versus worried dogs.

Dogs that are relaxed often have open mouths, relaxed eyes, happy expressions, and ears that face forward or are relaxed. Worried dogs, on the other hand, tend to have closed mouths, wrinkles around their eyes or forehead, and ears that face sideways or point backwards.

It is not always easy to determine if a dog poses a threat to your safety. If you’ve suffered a dog bite injury, contact the dog bite experts at Shea Law Group by calling (773) 365-0040.
